Well into the “golden” class of disk attractions, London Records' Rolling Stones have already left a strong mark in the history of the disk business with their singles and LP suc- 
cesses. They’ve cut two gold LP sellers, “Out Of Our Heads” and “December’s Children.” There is a million-selling single with the Rolling Stones' sound, “Satisfaction,” and a host 
of singles and albums that have come close to the vaunted $1 million sales (LP’s) or copies (singles) mark. This week, the English attraction offers their fans a new London single, 
“19th Nervous Breakdown.” They appear on the Ed Sullivan TV'er this Sunday (13), after which they head for a 2-week tour of Australia. Behind the controls of their sessions is 
Andrew Loog Oldham. Both Oldham and the group are under the direction of Allen Klein.

Mr. Alger’s Still Right 



The books in which Horatio AJgei^^\ Whether speaking of corporate 
conveyed his characters on a ragsTo- giants or the more modest area of label 


riches course may well be “camp” to- 
day. But, his thesis that individual in- 
genuity could multiply a penny a mil- 
lion fold is not merely an American 
Dream, but an American Reality. How 
delighted this chronicler of a younger 
America's optimism would be if he 
were alive today to witness startling 
true-to-life examples of his “dated” 
fiction. 

Investors in the stock market are 
well aware of companies whose exist- 
ence were unknown or unappreciated 
a decade ago that are now numbered 
among the Blue Chip investments. To 
hit home, we need only investigate the 
record business to come up with fan- 
tastic rags-to-riches realizations of the 
Horatio Alger concept. 

About the most striking recent in- 
stance of such success has been the 
A&M label, which in several years has 
parlayed a sound hit (the Tijuana 
Brass) into a well-diversified gold-mine 
of an operation. The growth of the 
company fits to a T the pattern of 
meeting initial success with re-invest- 
ment (in A&M’s case, new artist devel- 
opment and diversity of musical ap- 
peal) and, that great intangible, faith 
in the future of the business. Going 
back a bit further, we have witnessed 
the remarkable growth into industry 
giants of the Tamla-Motown disk oper- 
ation and, on the publishing end, the 
outfits under the aegis of the Beatles’ 
corporate complex. 


growth, the business world is con- 
stantly confronted with the dreary 
claim that there is no longer any op- 
portunity for making one’s mark when 
one starts at the bottom. This is rub- 
bish in any field of contemporary en- 
deavor; it is particularly outlandish in 
the record business. 

It takes one hit sound to start things 
humming at a new disk operation (or 
publishing firm, for that matter). 

Turning the hit record trick is, of 
course, not easy. More difficult yet, is 
the ability to maintain one’s standing 
after initial success. Opening the door 
to recognition is one thing, but seeing 
to it that one remains a significant fac- 
tor in the record business requires all 
the ingenuity, hard work and, we re- 
peat, faith in the business, one can 
muster. 


It is one of the truly exciting and 
unique aspects of the record business 
that it must supply a product one can- 
not readily put his finger on (music) 
and attempt to sell it like a pair of 
shoes or camera. 

The record business would have 
probably amazed Mr. Alger. It still 
amazes those who are at its very core. 
And because it fascinates those on its 
periphery, it will continue to draw 
those who believe that Mr. Alger knew 
what he was writing about.

the San Remo Song Festival took 
place at the famous Mediterranean 
resort of the same name on the 
shores of Italy’s Riviera dei Fiori on 
Jan. 27, 28 & 29, with the song “Dio 
Come Ti Amo,” perfoi’med by Gigliola 
Cinquetti (C.G.D.) and Domenico Mo- 
dugno (Cemed-Carosello), who also 
composed it. It is published by Edi- 
zione Curci. 


100% Italian Victory 

Tremendously popular in their own 
country and Internationally famous 
both Cinquetti and Modugno have tri- 
umphed at San Remo before. 

Gigliola Cinquetti was the winner 
two years ago in 1964 with “Non Ho 
L’Eta Per Amarti.” One of the big- 
gest hits ever to come out of San 
Remo, it sold over 3 million copies 
and took the young singer into the 
best selling charts all over the world. 

Last year, she was matched with 
American Connie Francis with a ro- 
mantic ballad “Ho Bisogno Di Ve- 
derti,” which failed to click. 

However the lions share of this 
year’s victory must go to Domenico 
Modugno. As composer and singer, it 
was a double achievement and his 
very special place in the hearts of the 
Italian public certainly contributed 
enormously to the final result. In fact, 
it was the personality of the singer as 
much, if not more than the quality of 
the song that won the votes of the 
jury. 

This is the fourth time than Mo- 
dugno has triumphed at San Remo 
and the International reputation that 
the festival enjoys today is largely 
due to his earlier successes. 

It all started way back in 1958 
when he won with his own composi- 
tion “Nel Blu Dipinto Di Blu,” which 
later became the world wide hit “Vo- 
lare.” A year later he won again with 
“Piove,” which retitled “Ciao, Ciao 
Bambino” became another Interna- 
tional hit. A year later in 1960, he 
relinquished his crown but came sec- 
ond with “Libero.” However in 1962 
he returned to complete his winning 
hat-trick with “Addio, Addio.” 

A formidable record of achievement 
that augers well for the future suc- 
cess both in Italy and abroad of his 
latest contribution, the slow, melodic 
ballad “Dio Come Ti Amo.” 

The standard of songs generally 
was higher than last year but not as 
good as the vintage year of 1964, 
which in addition to “Non Ho L’Eta” 
already mentioned also gave Bobby 
Solo, Ricordi Records and the world 
“Una Lacrima Sul Viso.” 


The Other Songs 

However, it is not always the win- 
ning song that necessarily scoops the 
biggest sales in the long run. For ex- 
ample, in this year’s contest, several 
other entries may quite possibly 
notch up considerable sales such as 
“Nessundo Di Voi,” extremely well 
performed by Milva (Fonit-Cetra)

and Richard Anthony (Pathe Mar- 
coni) “Nessuno Mi Puo’ Giudicare” 
sung by Caterina Caselli (C.G.D.) and 
Gene Pitney (Musicor) and “Mai Mai 
Mai” (Valentina) with which Giorgio 
Gaber (Ri-Fi) and Pat Boone (Dot) 
drew thunderous applause. Three 
numbers which stand out as potential 
international hits are “In Un Fiore” 
presented by Wilma Goich (Ricordi) 
and Les Surfs (Festival), “Una Rosa 
Da Vienna” sung by Anna Identici 
(Ariston) and The New Christy Min- 
strels (C.B.S.). The third number 
“Paff-Bum” did not make the finals 
but was well received and performed 
by Lucio Dalla (RCA) and The Yard- 
birds (Columbia). 

San Remo no longer needs to rely 
on the quality of the songs presented 
to draw the crowds. With each suc- 
ceeding year more and more artists, 
publishers, and music men make their 
way to the sun at the end of January 
and San Remo offers its visitors a 
unique opportunity to meet in idyllic 
surroundings in order to exchange 
ideas, discuss and conclude deals. This 
year more people than ever thronged 
to the small resort filling all the lead- 
ing hotels in and around the town. 

It is understood that the interna- 
tional gathering included 500 TV. 
Radio and Press men — 200 artists and 
musicians — over 250 music publishers 
and some 3000 sun-seeking visitors. 

Nevertheless it was not all sun- 
shine and as in previous years the 
months leading up to the event were 
politically stormy. This year friction 
between the recording companies and 
the organizers of the Festival re- 
sulted in the early withdrawal of 
three record companies — RCA, Ri-Fi 
and Durium, mainly because in their 
opinion the total record sales result- 
ing from the contest do not make up 
for the loss of normal business during 
the four months preceeding, during 
and after the event. 

Later Ri-Fi resolved their differ- 
ences and two of their artists, Iva 
Zanicchi and Giorgio Gaber were en- 
tered. 

RCA, although officially abstaining 
were represented on the stage by two 
of their artists, Edoardo Vianello and 
Lucio Dalla. Durium did not partici- 
pate. This year more foreign artists 
took part than ever before. From 
America came Gene Pitney (Musi- 
cor), The New Christy Minstrels 
(CBS), Pat Boone (Dot), Bobby Vin- 
ton (CBS), Vic Dana (Liberty), P. J. 
Proby (Liberty). France was repre- 
sented by Richard Anthony (Pathe 
Marconi), Francoise Hardy (Vogue), 
Les Surfs (Festival) and Ricardo 
(Festival). The Los Paraguayos came 
from South America (Philips), and 
the U.K. was represented by Chad 
and Jeremy (CBS) and The Yard- 
birds (EMI). The Renegades (Polar) 
came from Sweden. 


tenor Giuseppe di Stefano and P. J. 
Proby, in both cases the artists were 
too good for their material and failed 
to go through to the final. On the 
same night top Italian singer Bobby 
Solo and British group The Yard- 
birds were also vanquished together 
with Franco Tozzi and Bobby Vinton, 
Luciano Tomei and Los Paraguayos, 
Equipe 84 and The Renegades. The 
biggest surprise of the second night 
was the elimination of the Italian 
favorite Adriano Celentano, who 
everyone was certain would go 
through into the final. Another sur- 
prise was the dismissal of Lucio Dalla 
and The Yardbirds, a big disappoint- 
ment for Ricordi, which had brought 
the British group over in an effort to 
boost beat music in Italy. Neverthe- 
less as it is reported that the record 
of their number “Paff-Bum” is selling 
very well all over Italy their efforts 
may well result in getting this new 
‘mund of music away. 

The fact that again most of the 
songs presented were ballads of one 
kind or another and very Italian in 
style is a confirmation that the Festi- 
val is angled more at Publishers than 
Record eomoanies. 

Already the world rights of the 
winning song have been assigned and 
the Modugno and Cinquetti record- 
ings scheduled for release in many 
territories. This year, there was a 
change in the selection procedure of 
the songs for the final. In addition to 
the panels of judges throughout Italy, 
who selected six songs from each of 
the preliminary contests, an addition- 
al panel of 15 journalists (12 Italian 
and 3 Foreign) attending the contest 
in San Remo were appointed on each 
of the nights to choose one additional 
song. Thus 14 songs instead of the 
usual 12 were rendered on the last 
night. 


As practically the entire Italian i 
music industry went to San Remo for ) 
the festival, it would be impossible to'i* 
name all the publishers and record 
executives individudally but the for-' y- 
eign visitors included: — j

Epic Sales Meet Unveils 'DeVille Run' 
Incentive Program For Distribs 


I MIAMI BEACH — At its recent na- 
tional sales meeting, held in Miami 
Beach, Epic Records announced the 

* start of a new six-month sales incen- 
tive prog-ram and the release of some 

' k highly diversified product which in- 
cludes LP’s, little LP’s and classical 
i tapes. 

The program, named the “Epic De- 
Ville Run,” is a “road race” in which 
a distributor earns points translated 
into miles based on his performance 
'in the sales of records during the 
race. Winners will be announced at 
the Epic Sales Convention held in 
July. 

,, To coincide with the road race, Epic 
has developed a new slogan, “The 
success Route for 66,” which will be 
utilized in all promotion, merchandis- 
ing and advertising through the dura- 
‘ r tion of the incentive program. 

In order that the size of an individ- 
i ual organization does not determine 
the winner, all distributors will par- 
% ticpate equally on the basis of a mar- 
ket share index, compiled through 
electronic data processing. This marks 
the first time computers have been 
used in a record labels sales program. 

* All personnel within each distribu- 
torship will participate in the unique 

A program. The first three Epic Dis- 
tributors leading the race as of July 
2, 1966, will win fabulous prizes for 
all members of their organization. A 
1966 Cadillac DeVille Convertible 
will go to the first place-winning dis- 
tributor executive or sales manager. 
a The second prize consists of an all 
expense week-long trip for two to 
£*' Paris, and the third prize includes a 
week for two in the Caribbean. Prizes 
to other personnel in the top three 
organizations include 19" table model 
Color television sets to each Promo- 
tion Manager and Operations Man- 
ager, as well as to all Salesmen. 
M Every member of the office and ware- 
house staffs will receive a Ronson 
f Butane pocket cigarette lighter. 

To maintain continuing excitement, 
status reports in the form of maps, 


also compiled and printed by the com- 
puters, will be mailed to the distrib- 
utors every two weeks. 

The label debuted four popular and 
two international LP’s. The former 
group includes “The Dave Clark 
Five’s Greatest Hits,” “Nothing 
Thrilled Us Half As Much” by Fred 
Astaire, “That’s The Way It’s Gonna 
Be” by the Back Porch Majority and 
“Mose Allison Sings and Plays V-8 
Ford Blues.” The latter pair includes 
“San Remo Festival, 1966” and “Tor- 
agee.” 

The release of eight stereo little 
LP’s was also announced at the meet- 
ing. The octet includes “From The 
Wrists Down” by Buddy Greco; 
“Berry Pickin’ In The Country” by 
Jim Rand Jesse and the Virginia 
Boys; “A String of Pearls” by Bobby 
Hackett; the Golden Gate Strings’ “A 
String of Hits”; “Polka-Town Hop” 
with Ray Budzilek and the Polka- 
Town Boys; “Hawaii’s Greatest Hits” 
with Prince Kalua and the Tropical 
Islanders; the Arena Brass’ “The 
Lonely Bull” and “Roy Hamilton’s 
Greatest Hits.” 

Also included in the new product 
are two major classical tapes. “Bee- 
thoven: The Nine Symphonies” as 
performed by The Cleveland Orches- 
tra under the direction of George 
Szell and “Beethoven: The Five Piano 
Concertos” as performed by the same 
aggregation, are the pair. 



'DeVille Run' Status Report 


RIAA: Disk Sales In 

NEW YORK — Record sales in the 
U.S. for 1965 reached new heights, 
according to estimates of the Record 
Industry Association of America 
(RIAA). 

As reported in the association’s 
14th annual year-end wrap-up, sales 
totalled $619,100,000 at retail list 
price value. On the manufacturer 
level, the total estimate is more than 
$300,000,000. 

The total for 1964 was $578,000,000. 
Since 1950, industry sales have in- 
creased almost four-fold, from $172,- 
200,000 to the new $600 million plus 
figure. 

The RIAA report tied-in the new 
history-making total with the fact 
that 1965 saw the most albums and 
singles receiving RIAA gold disk 
awards. Forty-seven awards were 
made, including the most ever for 


Settle Kingsmen Vs 
Jack Ely Litigation 

NEW YORK — After three days of 
trial, a settlement and compromise 
was reached last week (31) in the 
Circuit Court of the State of Oregon 
involving a legal action by the Kings- 
men against Jack Ely, a former mem- 
ber of the group, and others. 

In essence, both parties have 
agreed to terms which will dictate 
the use of Ely’s name in various as- 
sociations with the Kingsmen. 

On Ely’s end, he will not perform, 
with the exception of a series of con- 
certs to end May 7, 1966, with a 
group called the Kingsmen, but will 
be able to bill himself as Jack Ely, 
“formerly of the Kingsmen,” with 
equal prominence given to the word 
“formerly” in printed matter. 

As for Ely’s performance on the 
Kingsmen hit on Wand, “Louie, 
Louie,” the agreement calls for prop- 
er billing, both in lip synch perform- 
ances and recordings, of Ely's name 
as a lead singer. Ely, in return, is 
prevented from associating his 
“Louie, Louie” performance with his

PHILADELPHIA — There’ll be a sell- 
out performance for the upcomng 
NARM (rack jobber) convention in 
Miami Beach, Fla., Jules Malamud, 
the association’s exec secretary an- 
nounced last week. 

In fact, Malamud added, the 1966

Victor Bows ' Living Liner' 

NEW YORK — With the February re- 
lease of “The Two Worlds of Kurt 
Weill” album, RCA Victor Records 
has introduced a “Living Liner” rec- 
ord, a thin seven-inch vinyl LP rec- 
ord. The “Living Liner” record, which 
is included in addition to the regular 
liner, will contain appreciations of 
Kurt Weill’s work narrated by Ogden 
Nash, Langston Hughes, Ira Gersh- 
win and Morton Gould, four men who 
knew and were associated with Weill 
during his lifetme. 

A&R producer Howard Scott, who 
was in charge of the recording ses- 
sions for the album, thought of the 
idea of the “Livng Liner.” The 
“Liner record is planned for use with 
subsequent RCA Victor albums.

singles releases. The total for 1965 
was 11. RIAA began auditing for 
gold disk awards in 1958. 

In a run-down of RIAA-associated 
developments in 1965, the association 
noted a number on the legislative 
front, including the repeal of the 10% 
federal excise tax on disks, RIAA- 
sponsored testimony on the proposed 
revision of the Copyright Act and as- 
sociation activity to keep disks on the 
same postal rate footing enjoyed by 
books. 

The RIAA’s marketing committee’s 
activities included a study of the 
feasibility of renewing an industry- 
wide National Record Week or Na- 
tional Record Week with “greater co- 
operation and concentration on the 
part of member companies than in the 
RIAA-sponsored program in Oct. 
1964.

RAMBLINGS 



NEW YORK: 

Three local young ladies who have 
made good on their first step toward 
the top of the pop market are Barbara 
Harris, Barbara Parritt and June 
Monteiro, better known to their ever- 
growing devotees as the Toys. The 
girls burst on the fall scene with a 
tune based on a Bach piano exercise 
called “A Lover’s Concerto” which 
promptly swept all in its path in its 
climb up the charts, hitting number 
one and earning the girls’ their first 
gold record. Not ones to rest on their 
laurels the trio came right back with 
“Attack” and success. However these 
three Jamaica (New York) bred miss- 
es have a goal that goes beyond mak- 
ing good records in a studio, they 


market places with Lorraine Ellison’s 
“I Dig You Baby,” and Lesley Gore’s 
“We Know We’re In Love.” He’s also 
carrying Johnny Mathis’ “Moment To 
Moment” to everyone. . . . Trini Lopez 
off to Hollywood to cut a pair of LP’s. 
One is slated for the Latin market 
and the other for the U.S. during the 
early summer. . . . The Lettermen 
break from their college tour to tape 
the “Sammy Davis Show” to be aired 
on March 25. . . . A1 Caiola was up to 
6:00 A.M. one recent morning cutting 
his version of the “Batman Theme” 
for UA. Caiola says that he wanted 
his out ahead of the pack. A pack 
which has risen to some twenty plus 
efforts. . . . Mike Gershman and 
Babara Cordez, both of the Ross/ 
O’Brien Agency, tie the knot on March

of the two forces which produces the 
emotional response. And Mitchell does 
weave a tapestry of fervent vignettes 
ranging from a tune from “Three- 
penny Opera” and Jacques Brel’s 
“Marieke” to Shel Silverstein’s “Jive”. 
Most are vintage pieces and relatively 
obscure songs. He takes “Over There,” 
an unmistakable flag waver, and 
twines it around the Brecht- Weill - 
Blitzstein “Army Song,” an anti-war 
theme. The result is overpowering. 
“She Was To Good to Me,” a Rodgers 
and Hart song, is an exquisitely deli- 
cate offering. Mitchell could well be 
called “an American chanteur.” One 
thing is sure — he’s definitely out of 
the folk bag and into another. What- 
ever it is, it fits him well. . . . Cur-

want to be complete performers, being 
able to hold their own in front of 
thousands of screaming teens at a 
Rock ’n Roll show or in front of a 
sophisticated night club audience be it 
in New York, London or wherever. 
The girls have been learning their 
craft in front of the TV cameras, on 
cross-country promo tours, on stages 
in New York and recently during a 
concert and promo tour of England. 
The DynoVoice artists are not willing 
to leave anything to chance, they 
aren’t asking for something for noth- 
ing, they have accepted the advice of 
their friends and manager and have 
taken as their motto: “Work, deter- 
mination, more work, determination 
and more work.” A worthy if pains- 
taking road to hoe in this day and age 
of the ultra-fast dollar. 

Versatile Mel Tonne is penning the 
music and lyrics for Frank Gorshin’s 
first Columbia effort to be titled “The 
Riddler.” Gorshin plays the part of 
the questioning villain in the ABC 
TV “Batman” series. Torme is also 
set for a spot on the Sammy Davis 
video stanza of Feb. 19. . . . Bobby 
Goldsboro currently visiting East 
Coast deejays plugging both his UA 
follow-up to “Broomstick Cowboy” 
titled “It’s Too Late” and the LP 
titled after the click. The young chan- 
ter, who has just finished two months 
of dramatics should soon be seen in 
the flicks. Currently in preparation is 
a guide to the many New York disco- 
theques. The listing, being compiled 
by Mike Schweitzer, will allow people 
to pick the kind of place they want to 
go to without having to find out the 
hard way. . . . Enzo Stuarti doing a 
one nigh ter at the Concord (12). . . . 
Joyce Jillson, who co-starred with 
Anthony Newley in “Roar Of The 
Greasepaint,” back in New York after 
conferences on the West Coast. . . . 
Activity at TRO revolving around 
singles by Charles Aznavour, “Who 
Will Take My Place,” Bobby Darin, 
“Silver Dollar” and the Moody Blues, 
“Stop!” . . . Donald O’Connor will

(12) on which Edward G. Robinson 
will do a dramatic reading from the 
works of Lincoln. . . . Danny White 
currently working the clubs in the 
Baltimore- Washington D.C. area pro- 
moting his “I’m Dedicating My Life” 
on Atlas. < . . Bobby Vinton taped a 
musical show in Polish for broadcast

BOBBY VINTON

for a trip to Puerto Rico to do a week 
at El San Juan (24). . . . Anthony

Anthony and the Imperials.” 

Liberty team of Bernie Block, Mel 
Fuhrman and Jim Brown dropped by 
with a new deck by the Swinging 
Blue Jeans titled “Don’t Make Me 
Over.” The trio also brought word 
that the Bud Shank “Michelle” LP is 
selling like crazy in New York. . . . 
Pete Bennett sez that Bobby Vinton’s 
“Tears” single and his “Satin Pillows 
and Careless” LP are both busting 
wide open. Pete also said to expect a 
new single by the Rolling Stones in

HOLLYWOOD: 

Chad Mitchell’s abbreviated solo 
stand at the Troubadour was note- 
worthy for several reasons. One is 
that it partially explained his motiva- 
tion for exiting the trio last June. He 
has been quoted as saying “They were 
holding me back. I wanted to be as 
creative as possible and felt I 
couldn’t.” It’s obvious that he’s a dedi- 
cated and inventive artist with a sure 
ability to communicate with an audi- 
ence. And yet Mitchell is obviously 
groping for direction and concerned 
with such things as “empathy” and 
achieving an emotional experience for 
his audience. He cites European art- 
ists Piaf and Montand, whom he 
admires, as exhibiting their art rather 
than their personalities. Does he mean 
that the performer should be subser- 
vient to his material? If so, we must 
disagree. The successful chanter may 
not dominate his act but neither do 
his songs. It’s the artful interweaving

Levy Buys Alegre Line 

NEY/ YORK — Morris Levy has an- 
nounced the acquisition of the entire 
catalog of Alegre Records. The pur- 
chase was made under the Bulk Sales 
Act of New York and involves some 
50 masters on the Alegre label. Alegre 
has a roster of talent who include 
Pacheco and His Charanga, the Ale- 
gre All-Stars (consisting of band- 
leaders, vocalists and instrumentalists 
under contract to Alegre), Eddie Pal- 
mieri and brother Charlie Palmieri, 
etc. It is the intention of Levy to con- 
tinue to operate under the Alegre 
label. 

Alegre is said to be the first to 
come out with the Charangas sound 
and the Pachanga dance, which began 
in New York as a result of their first 
LP by Pacheco and his orchestra. 
Following the success of this album, 
the Alegre All-Stars were formed, 
under the supervision of Charlie Pal- 
mieri. 

There are several new (Alegre) 
albums in reserve for future release, 
and Levy, president of Roulette Rec- 
ords, has indicated that a sales cam- 
paign will be announced involving 
the new masters. Terming the market 
for this type of music as constantly 
expanding, and the urgency to create 
more of this recorded music for the 
public ever present, Levy plans to 
combine a sales campaign for Alegre 
Records as well as his Tico label to 
fulfill the Latin market’s needs and 
wants for a time. Levy said that Tico 
sales had increased “considerably” 
over the past two years. He expects 
$1.5 million in sales in 1966 for his 
Latin lines. 

The Alegre label will bring with it 
Richard Marin, who will be promo- 
tion and sales chief for both Tico and 
Alegre. 



RISING HIGH — The five young men 
pictured here are the Rising Sons, 
Columbia artists whose first single 
“Candy Man” and “Devil’s Got My 
Woman” has just been released. Con- 
current with the release, the group 
will make its first major nightclub 
appearence at The Trip in Hollywood. 


Pelsman S. A. Trek 

Morrie (Pancho) Pelsman, Rou- 
lette’s international operations mana- 
ger for Latin America, representing 
Roulette as well as the Tico and Ale- 
gre labels, will leave on Feb. 18th for 
a month’s trip to South America. The 
purpose of his trip is to visit the 
foreign licensees to further develop 
the labels, as well as gather new ma- 
terial from the Latin-American 
Licensing Corporation, of which he is 
general manager. Pelsman’s travels 
will take him to Mexico, San Salvador, 
Panama, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, 
Argentina, Uraguay, Brazil, Vene- 
zuela, Puerto Rico and Miami, where 
he will culminate his trip. 


Jackie DeShannon Renews 
Liberty Singing-Writing Deal 

LOS ANGELES — The many faceted 
talents of Jackie DeShannon will con- 
tinue to remain exclusively with 
Liberty Records. According to an an- 
nouncement from Phil Skaff, execu- 
tive vp, she has just re-signed with 
Imperial Records as a recording 
artist and continues on as writer- 
contractee with Metric Music, both 
divisions of Liberty. 

The vocalist has had a number of 
successes on the label, including “The 
Prince,” “You Won’t Forget Me,” 
“Faded Love,” “Needles And Pins,” 
“When You Walk In The Room” and 
“Lifetime Of Loneliness”. However, 
it was “What The World Needs Now 
Is Love,” a 1965 blockbuster, which 
afforded her star status. 

As a writer, she has had notable 
success with many artists, among 
them, Brenda Lee (“Dum Dum” — 
“Heart In Hand” — “So Deep” — 
“Alone With You”— “He’s Sure To 
Remember Me” — “He’s So Heavenly” 
— “Funny Feeling” — “Up On A 
Hill”). The Searchers (“When You 
Walk In The Room”— “Till You Say 
You’ll Be Mine”— “Each Time”), The 
Righteous Bros. (“Burn On Love”), 
Marianne Faithful (“Come Stay 
With Me”— “In My Time Of Sor- 
row”). Other DeShannon tunes have 
been cut by Ricky Nelson, Helen 
Shapiro, The Fleetwoods, Troy Shon- 
dell, Sonny & Cher, Peggy March, 
Eddie Hodges and Patti Page. 

In addition to appearing on numerous 
major network TV shows in the nation, 
she has starred in several motion pic- 
tures and was featured on the first 
Beatles American tour. She recently 
returned from Vietnam, where she ac- 
companied Eddie Fisher on a special 
Christmas tour for our servicemen.

Ray Brown Departs, Sam Jones 
Joins Oscar Peterson Trio 

NEW YORK — With the retirement 
of bassist Ray Brown, Sam Jones has 
joined the Oscar Peterson Trio. Jones 
was formerly with the Cannonball 
Adderly group. 

The trio, whose latest Limelight 
release is “With Respect To Nat,” an 
instrumental and vocal tribute to the 
late Nat King Cole, has just re- 
turned from a three-week tour of 
Japan. 

For the remainder of Feb. and 
part of March, the group will tour 
several colleges in concert. On Mar. 
4, they will appear in Carnegie Hall; 
on March 18, 19, 20 they will be in 
Boston, Newark, and Washington, 
D.C., with Duke Ellington and Billy 
Eckstine; and on Mar. 20 they will 
go to Europe on a tour that will take 
them to Germany, Spain, Portugal, 
and the Scandinavian countries. 


Al Hirt: Sell Out Tour 

NEW YORK— Playing to 13,434 peo- 
ple during the first four days of his 
West Coast tour, Al Hirt grossed a 
total of $44,790, according to the 
musician’s manager Gerard W. Pur- 
cell. 

Thus far, Hirt has appeared at 
Valley Music Theatre, Woodland 
Hills, Calif.; Jubillee Auditorium, 
Calgary, Alberta, Canada; Edmon- 
ton, Canada; and the Seattle Arena, 
Seattle, Wash. Advance ticket sales 
indicate continued sell outs for the 
remainder of his tour which includes 
Vancouver, B.C.; Portland, Spokane, 
Billings, Bozeman, Missoula, Little 
Rock, Beaumont, Houston, Dallas, Ft. 
Worth, Lubbock, Texas, Cocoa, Fla., 
Nashville, Oklahoma City, and San 
Antonio. 


Nuptials For 
Dain-DeShannon 

HOLLYWOOD — Jackie DeShannon, 
who has just re-signed with Liberty 
Records and Metric Music as artist 
and composer (see separate story), 
also pacted with Bud Dain, national 
sales and promotion director for 
World Pacific Records. 

They were married (Jan. 27) at 
the Saint Ambrose Church in Los 
Angeles. Present at the ceremony 
were the bride’s parents, Mr. and 
Mrs. Meyers and Al Bennett, presi- 
dent of Liberty Records, who served 
as best man. 


Nat'l Exposure Drive 
For W-P's Bob Lind 

NEW YORK — Charlie Greene and 
Brian Stone plan a national per- 
sonal appearance and exploitation 
campaign for World-Pacific Records 
artist, Bob Lind, who recently signed 
with the managerial team for exclu- 
sive representation in all fields. 

Lind, who writes and performs his 
own music, has been set for guest 
shots on “Hollywood A Go Go,” 
“Where the Action Is,” “Shebang,” V 
“The Lloyd Thaxton Show,” “Top 40 *. 
Discotheque,” and “Shivaree” in ad- 
dition to “9th Street West.” Proj- 1 
ected plans being mapped by Greene 
and Stone call for Lind to hit the 
road throughout much of February to ^ 
exploit his latest single, “Elusive 
Butterfly,” which is already on the * 
charts. An LP is slated for February 
release. 

Greene and Stone, who brought the 
folk ’n roll singers Sonny and Cher 
to international prominence, recently + 
severed managerial ties with them 
to pursue the development of new 
talent. Sonny and Cher, however, * 
continue to record for Greene/Stone’s 
York-Pala label. Greene/Stone Pro- 
ductions will also handle the sale of 
“Sonny & Cher In London,” an hour- 
long color video special produced and 
directed by the managerial team for 
national syndication.

Pick of the Week 


LISTEN PEOPLE (2:31) [New World, ASCAP— Gouldman] 

GOT A FEELING (2:08) [Henry VII, BMI— Karger, Weisman, Wayne] 
HERMAN’S HERMITS (MGM 13462) 

Herman’s Hermits, who are currently coming off “She’s A Must To 
Avoid,” should certainly add more sales laurels to their long hit chain 
with this potent follow-up from the crew’s “Hold On” flick. The plug 
side, “Listen People,” is a tender, lyrical warm-hearted romancer with 
a contagious repeating riff. “Got A Feeling” is a rhythmic, handclapper 
about a lucky lad who has finally met the girl of his dreams. 


WHY CAN’T YOU BRING ME HOME (2:25) 

[Picturetone, BMI — Kasha, Hirschhorn, Farrell] 

BABY STOP YOUR CRYIN’ (2:30) [Wippity, BMI— Deane, Black] 
JAY & AMERICANS (United Artists 992) 

Jay and the Americans have that money-in-the-bank plastered all over 
this new UA offering, “Why Can’t You Bring Me Home,” which is a 
follow-up to their recent “Sunday & Me” triumph. This one’s a rhythmic, 
pulsating affair about an unhappy lad whose poverty-stricken gal is 
ashamed to bring him to her apartment. “Baby Stop Your Cryin’” is a 
haunting bittersweet teen-themed heart-breaker. 


MAGIC TOWN (3:03) [Columbia-Screen Gems, BMI— Mann, Weil] 
HUMPTY DUMPTY (2:20) [RTD, BMI— Cohen, Rostelli] 
VOGUES (Co & Ce 234) 


The Vogues should make their third trip to chartsville (they’ve already 
scored with “You’re The One” and “Five O’Clock World”) with this 
ultra-commercial Co & Ce stand called “Magic Town.” The side is an 
easy-going, dramatic ode about a determined guy who plans to snare 
‘the good life’ for himself. The bottom lid’s a rollicking, fast-moving 
reading of “Humpty Dumpty.” 


MY DARLING HILDEGARDE (1:47) [Acclaim, BMI— Reid] 
THE DOODLIN’ SONG (2:08) [Southwind, BMI— Reid] 
STATLER BROTHERS (Columbia 43526) 


Although the Statler Bros, are still picking up plenty of loot with 
their pop-c&w smash of “Flowers On The Wall,” this impressive follow- 
up, “My Darling Hildegarde,” should not be hindered in its assault on 
the charts. The tune is a rhythmic, real fast-moving ode about a fella 
who is treated rather poorly by his gal. “The Doodlin’ Song” is an easy- 
going, clever country novelty. 


ONE MORE HEARTACHE (2:39) 

[Jobete, BMI — Robinson, Moore, Rogers, White, Tarplin] 

WHEN I HAD YOUR LOVE (2:28) 

[Jobete, BMI — Robinson, Rogers, Moore] 

MARVIN GAYE (Tamla 54129) 


Marvin Gaye should reap loads of pop-r&b loot with this blue-ribbon 
follow-up to his recent “Ain’t It Peculiar” smasheroo. The plug lid here, 
“One More Heartache,” is a rhythmic, chorus-backed lament about a guy 
who feels that if his gal hurts him again it will be the straw that breaks 
the camel’s back. “When I Had Your Love” is a tender, medium-paced 
blues-soaked weeper. 


(IT’S ALL OVER NOW) BABY BLUE (2:36) 
[M. Witmark, ASCAP— Dylan] 

MUCH AS I LOVE YOU (2:40) 

[MRC & Creation, BMI — Henrique, Brown] 

NOEL HARRISON (London 9815) 


Hot-on- the-heels of his reputation-establishing “A Young Girl” tri- 
umph, Noel Harrison comes up with this potent reading of Bob Dylan’s 
oft-cut “(It's All Over Now) Baby Blue.” The songster reads blistering 
anti-war song in a sincere, rhythmic soulful style. “Much As I Love 
You” is a tender, slow-shufflin’ pledge of romantic devotion. 


MY BABE (2:10) [Arc, BMI— Dixon] 
PAIN (2:00) [Don & Suave, BMI— Head] 
ROY HEAD (Back Beat 560) 


Roy Head is a cinch to score in both the pop and r&b departments 
with this ultra-commercial Back Beat entry labeled “My Babe.” This 
one’s a hard-driving low-down funky jumper about a fella who has a 
real jealous girlfriend. The undercut, “Pain,” is a tender, slow-shufflin’ 
soulful tale of rejection essayed with loads of feeling by the chanter. 


TOGETHER ’TIL THE END OF TIME (2:57) 
[Jobete, BMI — Wilson] 

SAD SONG (2:37) [Jobete, BMI— Wilson] 
BRENDA HALLOWAY (Tamla 54125) 


Brenda Halloway can quickly get back in her previous money-making 
ways on the basis of this top-notch Tamla newie tabbed “Together ’Til 
The End Of Time.” The tune is a plaintive, slow-shufflin’ pop-r&b chorus- 
backed romancer about a lucky gal who has finally found the guy 
of her dreams. “Sad Song” is a tradition-oriented, soul-drenched tale 
of rejection. 


SUPERMAN (2:13) [E. H. Morris, ASCAP— Adam, Strouse] 


I CAN’T GET HER OFF MY MIND (2:27) 
[Screen Gems-Columbia, BMI — Boyce, Hart] 


DINO, DESI & BILLY (Reprise 0444) 

Deejays should come out in force for this new appropriately-campish 


Dino, Desi & Billy Reprise outing, “Superman,” from the soon-to-bow 
main-stem musical. The side is a pulsating, rhythmic rocker which sez 
that none other Krypton’s ambassador-sans-portfolio (Clark Kent) is 
the most amazing guy around. “I Can’t Get Her Off My Mind” is a slick, 
low-key ode about a love-sick fella who is completely wrapped up with 
his gal. 


SHARING YOU (3:10) 

[A. C. Renfro, BMI — Saunders] 


SHARING YOU (2:49) 

[A. C. Renfro, BMI — Saunders] 


WALK AWAY (3:25) 
[Saico-Chevis, BMI — Sain] 


PLEASE STOP LAUGHING 
AT ME (2:50) 

[A. C. Renfro, BMI — Renfro] 


MITTY COLLIER (Chess 1953) 


CARL HENDERSON (Omen 13) 


Here are two versions of a new tune called “Sharing You” either one 
of which could make it to hitsville in no time flat. Both Mitty Collier 
and newcomer Carl Henderson treat the slow-shufflin’ soul-drenched 
lament about the problems of a romantic triangle in convincing, sincere 
fashions. The Chess coupler, “Walk Away,” is a slow-moving tearjerking 
ode about a romance which is headed for the rock. “Please Stop Laugh- 
ing At Me” is a rollicking, fast-moving traditional blues weeper. 


HELLO ROOMMATE (2:16) [Cornerstone, BMI — Blackwell] 


LOVEY KRAVEZIT (2:24) 

[Screen Gems-Columbia, BMI — Keller, Greenfield] 


VIC DANA (Dolton 317) 


Vic Dana, who hit last time out “Crystal Chandelier,” should also 
strike paydirt with this excellent re-working of “Hello Roommate.” The 
songster dishes-up the easy-going, teen-oriented heart-throbbing lament 
in an impressive soulful style. “Lovey Kravezit” is a cute, warm-hearted 
shufflin’ romancer. 


NIGHT TRAIN (2:18) 

[Frederick, BMI — Forrest, Washington, Simpkins] 


WHEN THE SAINTS GO MARCHING IN (2:00) [P.D.] 
VISCOUNTS (Amy 949) 


The Viscounts did well recently with an updating of their own years- 
back “Harlem Nocturne” triumph and this top-drawer revival of “Night 
Train” should go a like success route. The crew reads the raunchy blues 
sturdie in a contagious, hard-driving danceable style. “When The Saints 
Go Marching In” is given a freewheelin’ rendition on the coupler.

jillllllllllUllilllllllllllllllill! 



P. F. SLOAN (Dunhill 4024) 

• FROM A DISTANCE (2:59) 
[Trousdale, BMI — Sloan] 
Chanter-cleffer P. F. Sloan could well 
have a hit on his hands with this 
mighty impressive slow starting but

arresting, slow-shufflin’ pop-blues romantic ode which describes how 
love can drastically change any relationship. “There Ain’t Nothin’ I 
Wouldn’t Do For You” is a rollicking, fast-moving, happy-go-lucky r&b 
romancer.

A HARD DAY’S NIGHT (1:48) [Maclen, BMI — Lennon, McCartney] 
HELP! (2:11) [Maclen, BMI — Lennon, McCartney] 

PETER SELLERS (Capitol 5580) 

Thespian Peter Sellers stands an excellent chance of duplicating his 
current British success of “A Hard Day’s Night” on this side of the 
foam. The hard-driving Beatles hit is given an extremely funny tongue- 
in-cheek recitation which is effectively enhanced by a semi-classical 
orchestral backing. “Help!” gets a similar working-over on the flip.

ance.

Instrumental reading of the “Man Of 
La Mancha” tune. 


THE TRACERS (Sully 928)

POPPIES (Epic 9893) 

The Poppies are a cinch to create both middle-of-the-road and Top 40 
excitement with this top-notch Epic bow called “Lullaby Of Love.” The 
side is a hauntingly melodic effectively-building romancer based on a 
popular Brahms’ lullaby. “I Wonder Why” is a soul-drenched, tradi- 
tional blues woeser. 


JUANITA BANANA (2:28) [Tash, BMI— Howard, Kenton] 
FUN (2:40) [Tash, BMI— Howard, Smith] 


BOB SLED & TOBOGGANS 
(Cameo 400) 

• HERE WE GO (2:25) [May- 
gar, BMI — Johnston] Bob Sled 
and the Toboggans have an excellent 
chance of establishing themselves on 
a national basis with this pulsating

| this top-drawer AMM bow dubbed “That’s Part Of The Game.” The

i b. .:esy lament about a two-timing gal.

• THIS OLE HEART OF 
MINE (IS WEAK FOR YOU) 
(2:46) [Jobete, BMI — Holland,

POP PICKS 


MANTOVANI MAGIC— London LL 3448 

The Mantovani magic is some 20 years old, but 
it still casts its musical spell. Here, the appealing 
witchcraft is worked on such sturdy pieces as 
“Lover,” “Mona Lisa,” “Misty,” “Chim-Chim- 
Cheree” and “I Wish You Love.” As one can see 
and hear, Mantovani doesn’t settle for second-rate 
pop songs or second-rate showcasing. Add another 
winner to vast catalog of Mantovani successes. 


THE ORBISON WAY — Roy Orbison — MGM 
E/SE 4322 

Roy Orbison can expect enthusiastic reaction 
to this package which contains his current chart 
rider “Breakin’ Up Is Breakin’ My Heart.” Emo- 
tion is the key-word to the chanter’s sound, but 
he sings the songs included on the LP in a casual 
and relaxed manner. Songs included (nine of 
which were co-penned by the chanter) are, in 
addition to his present hit tune, “Crawling Back,” 
“Go Away,” and “This Is My Land.” 


SOUNDS OF SILENCE— Simon and Garfunkel— 
Columbia CL 2469/CS 9269 

Hitmaking duo Simon and Garfunkel are quick 
to follow-up the success of their “Sounds of 
Silence” single with this LP titled after and con- 
taining the smash. The eclectic pair has packed 
this set with potent pieces of commentary, high- 
lighted by such blueribbon efforts as “Blessed,” 
“Leaves That Are Green” and “Richard Corey.” 
Package packs the power to explode in both teen 
and adult markets. 


ROLL OUT THE RED CARPET— Buck Owens 
and his Buckaroos — Capitol T/ST 2443 

The incomparable hitmaking team of Buck 
Owens and his Buckaroos do up a dozen fine tunes 
most of which were penned by either the leader 
or one of the group. Highlight tracks on the disk 
include the title number “Gonna Roll Out The 
Red Carpet,” the hard driving instrumental “Ca- 
jun Fiddle” and the rousing “Hangin’ On To What 
I Got.” Set should be quickly snapped up by this 
group’s many fans. 


TAKE A RIDE — Mitch Ryder and the Detroit 
Wheels — New Voice 2000 

Hard on the heels of their current chart climber 
“Jenny Take A Ride,” Mitch Ryder and the 
Detroit Wheels, come on strong with this teen- 
slanted disk containing a host of hits including 
“Come See About Me,” “I Got You” and of course 
the group’s own click. Package should move out 
smartly in the ever bubbling rock market.

CHAMPAGNE ON BROADWAY — Lawrence 
Welk— Dot DLP 25688 

Lerner-Loewe, Rodgers and Hammerstein and, 
in one instance, Lerner-Lane, are the Broadway- 
ites who Welk turns to in this pleasing and, of 
course, melodic set. Most of the tracks of pure 
Welkian champagne tempo, but some of the cuts 
hint at the big beat. Latest tune is “On A Clear 
Day You Can See Forever.” A set right up the 
alley of Welk’s TV Saturday night fandom. 


THE IMPRESSIONS RIDIN’ HIGH— ABC-Para- 
mount ABC/ABCS 545 

In this collection, the Impressions serve up a 
soulful set of grooves that could well hit the 
charts. The voices of Curtis Mayfield, Sam Gooden 
and Fred Cash combine with a solid r&b backing 
and the result is the waxing of such tunes as “I 
Need To Belong To Someone,” “Right On Time.” 
and “Man’s Temptation.” This package of soul- 
sounds should find a welcome reception with the 
teen-age audience. 


UNBELIEVABLE — Billy Stewart — Chess LP- 
1499 

Stewart, a recent hit singles factor with “I Do 
Love You,” gives a personalized, soul-inspired 
account of 12 songs that need no calling card. 
Through it all, Stewart maintains a remai'kable 
respect for the original melodic line, though he >* 
does use them as a springboard for his own 
unique artistry. He is followed by many inventive . 
jazz combo moments. A set that’s different and 
effective. 


PEE WEE PLAYS PRETTY— Pee Wee Spitelera 
— RCA Victor LSP-3511 

Pee Wee is Pee Wee Spitelera, clarinetist main- 
stay of the A1 Hirt crew, who is making his solo 
debut on the Victor label. There is enough variety 
of material here — from evergreens to special 
material — to indicate the artist’s mastery of the 
instrument, from humor (“La Playa”) to 
humanity (“Golden Earrings”). Sounds of the 60’s 
in his musical accompaniment assure wide ex- 
posure of the cuts. It appears that a big new 
clarinet name has come to disks. 


l-r 


DREAM DANCING— TODAY— Ray Anthony— 
Capitol ST 2457 

The package continues a series of moonlight- 
and-mush sounds from the vet trumpeter’s ork. 
The songs are the better crop of “today’s” pop 
sounds (e.g. “Ipanema,” “A Taste Of Honey” and 
“Dear Heart”). The arrangements are smooth 
foxtrot, with backbeat touches that could mean 
an eventual singles release from the album. An 
updating of the dream-dancing sound that per- 
petuates a familiar disk sound. 


K 





RUSSIA — Stanley Black — London SP 44075 
This is a dazzling sound follow-up to Black’s 
very successful “Soul of a People” LP, a show- 
case of Jewish melodies. Here, the theme is 
Russian folksongs, the kind tailor-made for thrill- 
ing orchestrations and the phase 4 sound process, 
(e.g. “Meadowland,” “Dark Eyes,” “Sabre 
Dance”). To top off the affair, there’s two selec- 
tions from “Pictures at an Exhibition,” including 
the grand finale, “The Great Gate of Kiev.” Music 
of great excitement. 


JOHNNY TILLOTSON SINGS— MGM E/SE 

4328 

Johnny Tillotson’s relaxed chanting style is 
demonstrated throughout this LP which could be 
a strong bid for chart honors. Backed by a ro- 
mantic ork, the singer has waxed a set of grooves 
that should find a welcome reception with both 
the teen and adult market. Some of the top melo- 
dies include “One’s Yours, One’s Mine,” “Our 
World,” and “You Forgot To, Say I Love You.” 
Watch this one.

MICHAEL Sff.WART Jt’HKY S1CHMAK 


FROM THE WRISTS DOWN— Buddv Greco- 
Epic LN 24181 

As the title indicates, the singer-pianist is 
strictly pianist here. The date was done last Sept, 
in London and covers mostly tunes that had re- 
cent chart stays (e.g. “What’s New Pussycat?”, 
“Who Can I Turn To,” “I’m Henry VIII, I Am” 
and “Help!”). The arrangements are not designed 
to resemble the original single hit sound- but 
broadcast the tunes’ in rich, jazz-inclined formats. 
Three British arrangers handled Greco’s string- 
and bass accompaniment. 


HELLO, DOLLY— London Cast— RCA Victor 
LSOD-2007 

Mary Martin’s starring role in the London 
production of the smash musical is the reason 
for Victor’s second “cast” entry on the show 
(it’s already got a gold LP winner in the Carol 
Channing version). Jerry Herman’s score is much 
more than the title song, for it consists of the 
kind of basic melody that one rarely encounters 
on Broadway these days. And Mary Martin shows 
that she’s still the master of a brassy musical 
comedy song.

NEW YORK: MY PORT OF CALL— Jimmy 
Roselli— United Artists UAS 6467 

Roselli, a fine voice with a most loyal follow- 
ing, sings a paean to the great city. His bill-of- 
f are says just about everything nice that’s been 
put into words and music on the town, including 
“Autumn In New York,” “The Sidewalks Of 
New York,” “Manhattan,” “Give My Regards To 
Broadway” and a rarely-heard Jule Styne-Sammy 
Cahn, number, “Brooklyn Bridge.” Ralph Burns 
is responsible for the happy, often hip arrange- 
ments. A delightful set by a guy who obviously 
leaves his heart in New York when he’s not 
there. 



RUBY AND THE ROMANTICS GREATEST 
HITS ALBUM— Kapp KL 1458 

Ruby and the Romantics should have little 
trouble in gamering a good sales reaction with 
this album consisting of their greatest hits. With 
lead singer Ruby backed by the soft harmony of 
the Romantics, the group does such melodies as 
the haunting “Our Day Will Come,” “Your Baby 
Doesn’t Love You Anymore,” and “My Summer 
Love.” This one should make a strong bid for 
chart honors. 



A STRING OF PEARLS — Bobby Hackett — Epic 
LN 24174/BN 26174 

An alumnus of the Glenn Miller band, cornet- 
lst Bobby Hackett serves up a set of Miller 
favorites, but he plays them with a style all his 
own. In combination with Hackett’s cornet is the 
Wall-to-Wall Strings and Brass and the result 
is a tasteful album that includes such Swing-Era 
classics as “A String Of Pearls,” “Rhapsody In 
Blue,” and “In The Mood.” Top-notch sounds 
throughout the offering.

IKE COLE’S TRIBUTE TO HIS BROTHER 
NAT— Dee Gee LPM/ST 4001 
In his debut album, Ike Cole evokes instanta- 
neous memory of his brother, the late Nat “King” 
Cole. The chanter sings each tune with a clarity 
and polish that was so much a part of his 
brother’s style. Backed by a soft, warm ork, Cole 
sings many of the tunes that his brother was 
noted for including “Blue Moon,” “I’m In The 
Mood For Love,” and “Hi-Lili, Hi-Lo.” With his 
appealing vocal personality, Ike Cole could have 
himself a winner with this package. 



THE McGUIRE SISTERS RIGHT NOW!— ABC- 
Paramount 530 

The tried-and-true singing trio take a senti- 
mental walk down Tin Pan Alley for their first 
LP outing for ABC Paramount. Theirs is the non- 
gimmick approach to pop music, most refreshing 
when the market is relying heavily on acts that 
are determined to be one step ahead of the others 
in being different. Sturdies include “It Isn’t Fair,” 
“My Melancholy Baby,” “Nevertheless” and nine 
others.

BLUE MOON OF KENTUCKY— George Jones 
& Melba Montgomery— United Artists UAL 
3472/UAS 6472 

Country singers George Jones & Melba Mont- 
gomery have grouped a collection of c&w songs, 
the majority of which are musical sagas of un- 
requited love and romance gone astray. In addi- 
tion to the title song, “Blue Moon Of Kentucky,” 
their recent noisemaker, the duo sings 11 other 
selections including “Hall Of Shame,” “Wait A 
Little Longer,” and “Now Tell Me.” The result 
°f these songs and their pleasant harmony make 
this LP an extremely pleasurable listening ex- 
perience. 



A BAG FULL OF SOUL — Jose Feliciano — RCA 
Victor LPM/LSP 3503 

Singer-guitarist Jose Feliciano shows the broad 
range of his talents with this collection of folk, 
rock and blues songs. Backed by electric guitars 
and a rocking percussion, the blind musician 
comes on strong with such tunes as “If I Really 
Bug You,” “A Happy Guy,” and “Goin’ To Chi- 
cago Blues.” The album, which should garner 
many fans for the talented lad, might well hit the 
charts. 








iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii 


THE LAMP IS LOW— Bobby Gordon— Decca DL 
74726 

Gordon, Decca’s mood-music man of the clari- 
net (this is his third LP), attractively wraps-up 
a bevy of our-song creations, with strings and a 
harp helping the nice-and-easy mood along. In 
addition to the title number, other appropriate 
romantic songs are “Call Me Irresponsible,” “Too 
Close For Comfort,” “Smile” and “My Silent 
Love.” 


THE SHACKLEFORDS SING— Capitol ST 2450 
With a cute, comic pop-art format on the pack- 
age, the folk-rock group displays enough variety 
in material and approach to make listening an 
interesting experience in the important new musi- 
cal form. Two good contrasting examples of 
their art are the humorous “Five Feet High And 
Risin’ ” and the wistful “Everything I Touch 
Turns To Tears.” 


JAZZ PICKS 


FEELIN’ GOOD — Gerry Mulligan — Limelight LM 
82030/LS 86030 

Gerry Mulligan, for the first time in a long 
time, set aside his baritone sax long enough to 
do a couple of tunes on the clarinet and this 
should prove to be a treat to Mulligan’s many 
fans. Of course he also works with the sax and 
has the added attraction of strings backing his 
sound. The selection of tunes such as “Love 
Walked In,” “The Second Time Around” and 
“The Lonely Night (Night Lights)” leaves little 
else to be desired in an LP. 


THE CAPE VERDEAN BLUES— Horace Silver 
Quintet — Blue Note 4220 

The three sources of sound that were tapped 
in the molding of the tracks on this disk, Cape 
Verdean Portuguese folk music, Brazilian samba 
and good old American funk, when combined with 
the musical excellence that is the playing of the 
Horace Silver Quintet, with the bonus treat of 
the trombone of J. J. Johnson, makes a sound 
that is indescribable in any one word. Such cuts 
as the title track, “Nutville” and “Pretty Eyes” 
should please music lovers of most any stripe. 


ASCENSION — John Coltrane — Impulse A/AS 95 
That master of the tenor sax John Coltrane 
teamed up for this session with a group of jazz 
musicians some of whom are names in their own 
right and others who are relative unknowns, 
but all of whom are highly capable musicians. 
The bag that they go into on this single track 
disk can be called “Free Jazz” or “New Jazz” 
of “Third-stream Jazz” but no matter what name 
it is called by, it is an exciting, infectious, emo- 
tional experience for the listener. 


CLASSICAL PICKS 


MOZART/THE MAGIC FLUTE— Philharmonic 
Chorus and Orchestra/Klemperer — Angel 36315 
This single disk selection of highlights from 
Mozart’s renowned opera is given a totally con- 
vincing and attractive reading by this excellent 
cast under the masterful supervision of Otto 
Klemperer. The singing and orchestral work are 
striking in their clarity. LP should find a warm 
and welcome reception at the hands of both 
lovers of the work and of the maestro. 


SCHUBERT/MASS IN E. FLAT, D. 950— Vienna 
Choir Boys— Philips PHM 500-081/PHS 900-081 

This, the last of the masses composed by 
Schubert, about four months before his death, 
is impressive despite the conservative nature of 
its composition. The lay-out of the piece is quite 
conventional and its most striking feature is 
the well-knit solo and choral parts. The con- 
stant interchange between these two parts is 
further highlighted by the fact that at no point 
is a soloist allowed to predominate. Disk should 
be thoroughly enjoyed by devotees of classical 
masses.

Wesfringhouse Buys KFWB 

HOLLYWOOD — Radio station 
KFWB-Los Angeles has been sold by 
Crowell-Collier to Westinghouse for 
$10,750,000. The deal was consum- 
mated on Jan 26. Joseph Bernard, 
vice president and general manager 
of the outlet, said that Westinghouse- 
Group W plans to continue the exist- 
ing format of r&r programming. 

Don McGannon, prexy and chair- 
man of Westinghouse-Group W, ne-

will use the money to enter the TV 
field. 

The change of ownership is subject 
to approval by Federal Communica- 
tions Commission. The new owner 
must not only file for transfer of the 
frequency, but must also advise the 
commission on how the station will 
be programmed.

WBZ and WBZ-TV, Boston; WINS- 
New York; KYW and KYW-TV, 
Philadelphia; WGZ and WGZ-TV, Bal- 
timore; KDKA and KDKA-TV, Pitts- 
burgh; WOWO-Ft. Wayne; WIND-

‘10 Commandments’ Track 
OK’d For Initial Airtime 

HOLLYWOOD — The air play restric- 
tion by Famous Music and the Cecil 
B. Demille estate has been lifted on 
the movie soundtrack of “The Ten 
Commandments” and, with the re-re- 
lease of the film in March, Dot is plan- 
ning an extensive promotion on the 
album. The package will be serviced 
to a number of key stations through- 
out the country during the next few 
weeks, with brochures being mailed 
to AM and FM outlets on the film 
and score. The epic picture, called by 
many DeMille’s greatest, was first 
released a score of years ago on a 
road show basis. It will now be re- 
leased to theaters throughout the na- 
tion. The score was composed and 
conducted by Elmer Bernstein. 


Conniff Gets Award 
From Mexican Station 

NEW YORK — Columbia's Ray Conniff 
has received an award for his gold 
record-winning LP, “Memories Are 
Made Of This” from XERC Radio 
Exitos, Mexico’s leading station for 
international music. The award was 
established by the outlet in 1965 to 
honor the most popular international 
artists.

When KIMN-Denver wants to drive 
home a point, it does it by adhering 
to the adage that “action speaks 
louder than words.” In order to show 
the importance of the fact that driv- 
ing and drinking do not mix, deejay 
Gary Todd and news director Don 
Martin became intoxicated on the air. 
Dubbed “Operation Save-A-Life,” the 
campaign began in mid afternoon to 
coincide with the afternoon traffic pe- 
riod. As Todd and Martin started 
drinking two-ounce shots at regular 
intervals (under medical supervision), 
they underwent extensive examina- 
tions and experiments conducted by 
the Colorado State Patrol, Denver 
Police Department, Jefferson County 
Sheriff’s Office, American Medical As- 
sociation, the Bureau of Narcotics and 
the Edgewater Police Dept. The street 
in front of the studios was roped off 
and several steadiness, reaction, and 
periodic breatholizer tests were given 
to the airmen. After each test was 
completed, a record of the test results 
was recorded. Around 8 p.m., when 
the breatholizer indicated that both 
men were intoxicated, Todd was miss- 
ing cues, punching wrong buttons, 
and later he was slurring his words 
and giggling. Those associated with 
the experiment said that the effect of 
hearing, on the air, a person becom- 
ing intoxicated and losing his facul- 
ties had a tremendous impact on the 
audience. 

KMPC-Los Angeles air personality 
Gary Owens has received the Holly- 
wood Jaycees 1966 Distinguished 
Service Award. According to Jaycee 
president Bruce Strauss, the selection 
was based on Owens’ contributions to 
the community and on his personal 
development as an outstanding talent 
in his field. . . . WXYZ-Detroit broad- 
caster Lou Gordon has received the 
the Twelfth Annual Detroit Police 
Officers Association Radio Award for 
his understanding and comprehensive 
reporting of police work and their 
problems. . . . Two KDKA-Pittsburgh 
air personalities recently received Jay- 
cee awards. Bob Prince was honored 
as the Man of the Year in Human 
Relations and the Rev. Donald James 
was saluted as Man of the Year in 
Religion. . . . KNX-Hollywood has 
been presented with the Community 
Service Award of the Southern Calif. 
Chapter of the American Institute of 
Architects. 

How many people dream about a 
long ocean voyage but never get 
around to taking it? In helping its 
travel-minded listeners to come a lit- 
tle closer to their trip abroad, KSFO- 
San Francisco is hosting a bon voy- 
age party aboard a luxury liner that 
will take them absolutely nowhere. 
The outlet’s guest list for the “Voy- 
age to Nowhere” will include 200 con- 
test winners and their friends. The 
winners will be picked from the post- 
cards sent in. Cards will be dropped 
into the station’s Non-Bon trunk 
and names will be drawn every day 
through Feb. 15. The party, which 
will take place aboard the S.S. Lur- 
line, will take place on Feb. 22. The 
celebration, in addition to confetti and 
refreshments, will include entertain- 
ment by Mel Torme, Stan Kenton and 
his Orchestra, Allan Sherman, the 
Brothers Four, the Burns & Schreiber 
comedy team, Barbara McNair, the 
Howard Roberts Quartet, and the 
Goodtime Washboard Three. At mid- 
night the whistle will blow signaling 
the end of the voyage, and the contest 
winners will leave Pier 35, only to 
return to dreaming of that long ocean 
voyage. 



STARTING THE DAY— Three of the 
members of the staff of WQXI-At- 
lanta gather around Columbia Rec- 
ords’ duo Chad and Jeremy at a re- 
cent brunch in Atlanta. The outlet’s 
music director Paul Drew seems to be 
having a difficult time in keeping his 
eyes on the camera as Jeremy jok- 
ingly tempts him by holding up two 
rolls. Pictured in the photo are (left 
to right) Tony Taylor, Jeremy Clyde, 
Paul Drew, Chad Stuart, and Pat 
Hughes. Chad and Jeremy’s newest 
single, “Tennage Failure” c/w “Early 
Morning Rain,” was recently released. 

SPUTTERS: 

TGCQ-Guatemala City, “The Youth 
Station,” is run by a staff of lads 
ranging from 18 to 24. The outlet’s 
deejays play only North American 
records. . . . WCBS-New York air 
personality Ted Steel recently fea- 
tured Enzo Stuarti as “artist of 
the night.” . . . Mike Rapchak, deejay 
at WLS-Chicago, is planning a special 
salute to the late Nat King Cole on 
Feb. 19. . . . Lieutenant Colonel Rob- 
ert Cranston has been appointed Offi- 
cer-in-Charge of Armed Forces Radio 
and TV Services, Los Angeles. . . . 
David H. Polinger has been named 
president of the Friendly Frost broad- 
cast division. 

A total of 1,067 listeners wrote in 
to KNBR-San Francisco when deejay 
Frank Dill jokingly mentioned his 
“Secret Route Through Sacramento,” 
a way for motorists to avoid the Sa- 
cramento bottleneck. Dill himself had 
been having trouble getting through 
the Sacramento traffic on his way to 
the Sierra, so he did some research 
and came up with a side route, miss- 
ing much of the downtown traffic 
snarl around the state capitol build- 
ing. He then offered to draw a map 
for anyone needing it. When the 1,067 
listeners wrote in, the outlet em- 
ployed an artist and a printer to cre- 
ate a two-color map. The response of 
the audience caused Governor Ed- 
mund G. “Pat” Brown to write Dill a 
letter promising to expedite work to 
ease the way for motorists who must 
pass through Sacramento on the way 
to Lake Tahoe and Reno. State Sen- 
ator John Begovich testified at the 
State Highway Commission about the 
Frank Dill map and the exasperation 
that was expressed by Dill’s audience. 

VITAL STATISTICS: 

Air personality Lee Alan is upped to 
music director at WXYZ-Detroit. . . . 
Penny Martin has been promoted to 
director of publicity and promotion at 
WYDD-FM and WKPA-Am, New

Challenge outing of “Lies,” consist of 
Buddy Randell, Jimmy Walker, Beau 
and Johnny Charles, four lads from 
the New York-New Jersey area. 

The lads formed the group three 
years ago while attending high school 
in Bergenfield, N.J. Buddy, 23, who 
plays the saxophone and doubles on 
the drums, is co-penner of their cur- 
rent hit; Beau, 21, who also co-wrote 
“Lies,” is the lead guitarist; his 
brother, John, 22, is the bass player; 
and Jimmy, 24, is the group’s drum- 
mer and one of the lead singers. 

The four lads got their break when 
Jerry Fuller of Challenge Records 
spotted their talent and was instru- 
mental in securing for them a con- 
tract with the firm and a long-term 
booking at Hollywood’s Red Velvet 
club. The group has recently com- 
pleted their first film role in Univer- 
sal-International’s “Out of Sight,” 
and their debut LP, “Lies,” has been 
released. 


Christine Cooper 



After providing vocal background 
for many artists, Christine Cooper 
has scored as a soloist with her 
Cameo-Parkway chart-riding outing 
of “S.O.S. (Heart In Distress).” 

Although born in El Paso, Tex., the 
lark has lived most of her life in 
Brooklyn, N.Y. She started singing 
in her public school glee club and 
later became president of her church 
choir. Christine’s first recording job 
consisted of singing background with 
her sisters. During her career, she has 
sung background for such artists as 
Neil Sedaka, Freddie Scott, Eydie 
Gorme and many others. The songster 
has also woi'ked as a model, dancer 
and actress. 

Christine recently appeared on the 
“Hullabaloo” TV’er and is currently 
making personal appearances through- 
out the country as a result of her 
hit waxing.

Nationwide Tour 

NEW YORK — TV star Jimmy Dean 
will begin a nationwide tour late this 
month. The tour, which has a po- 
tential gross of over $500,000, will 
extend into September. Dean will 
have his own package on most of

ments until April 1, when the series 
will begin its summer hiatus. 

Dean’s itinerary includes, Houston, 
Oklahoma City, Tulsa, Cincinnati, 
Pittsburgh, Salt Lake City, Anaheim 
and San Carlos, Calif., Denver, 
Omaha, Wichita, Kansas City, Lake 
Tahoe, Portland, Spokane, Spring-

Drake Aims To Please On 
Broadway & Disk Market 

NEW YORK — A songwriter’s view 
of seventh heaven may well be the 
passing acquaintances who spot him 
and let him know how much they like 
his current hit song; his idea of 
eig'hth heaven could well be the one 
who says he’s written the best song 
over the past 15 years; then again, 
he can be swept up to even more rare- 
fied air by a composer of renown who 
declares that yet another song is 
right up his creative alley. 

All this has happened to Ervin 
Drake, currently riding high with “It 
was a Very Good Year” by Frank 
Sinatra, the song that concerns 
seventh and eight heaven. As for the 
other song, tribute came from none 
other than the late Cole Porter, who 
told a mutual friend of Drake and the 
composer that Drake’s “A Room 
Without Windows,” from his score to 
“What Makes Sammy Run?,” would 
be the kind of song he might pen if 
he were still active (obviously, Porter 
made this statement just before his 
death) . 

“It was a Very Good Year” and 
“Room Without Windows” are ex- 
amples of Drake’s ability within the 
Tin Pan Alley and musical theater 
fields. Though “Sammy” was a suc- 
cess, and he’s finding the right words 
and music for a musicalized version 
of Shaw’s “Caesar & Cleopatra,” 
Drake intends to write for disk suc- 
cess. During the creation of “Sam- 
my,” for instance, he penned “It was 
a Very Good Year,” gave Tommy 
Sands a hit sound with “Old Oaken 
Bucket” and wrote the English lyric 
to “A1 Di La.” In fact, Drake ex- 
plains, ideas he must discard for 
Broadway may eventually end up as 
material strictly for recording sake. 

To Drake, the present is “the very 
healthiest music making atmosphere 
of any time.” Gone, he says, are the 
taboos of pop songwriting that once 
had the business “seized by arterio- 
sclerosis.” In short, he contends, any- 
thing can make it. 

The history of “Good Year” can be 
cited as a song that wouldn’t quit. 
Written in 1961, it was included in a 
Kingston Trio LP, prophetically 
called “Goin’ Places.” It later achieved 
some success in England, with re- 
cordings by Lonnie Donegan, Chad & 
Jeremy and the Baron Knights. 
Sinatra heard a version of the song 
on his car radio at the time he was 
preparing his “September of My 
Years” LP. The song was a natural 
for the album — and, one could add, 
the singles market.

Perry Como To Return 
To In-Person Treks 

NEW YORK — Perry Como will make 
his first in-person tour in more than 
a decade when he embarks this sum- 
mer (Aug.-Sept.) on a tour of the 
state fair circuit. 

The RCA Victor artist’s decision 
to go on the road was based on the 
response to his TV shows over the 
past three years, which were pre- 
sented “live” from various key city 
auditoriums. NBC-TV, which broad- 
cast the shows, estimates that in each 
of these appearances, the demand for 
tickets was at least 10 times that of 
the auditoriums’ seating capacity. 

Booked by E. 0. Stacey, vp of 
General Artists Corporation, Como 
will headline the following fairs: 
Allentown, Pa., Wisconsin State Fair, 
Milwaukee; Central Canada Exposi- 
tion, Ottawa; Ohio State Fair, 
Columbus; Indiana State Fair, 
Indianapolis; Mid America Fair, 
Topeka, Kansas; Eastern State Ex- 
hibition, Springfield, Mass.; Municipal 
Auditorium, Omaha, Nebraska and 
Du Quoin Fair, Illinois. Dates, com- 
plete bookings and supporting cast 
will be announced at a later date. 

Buddy Howe, president of GAC, 
recalls Como’s last personal appear- 
ance tour. This was in July, 1954, 
when the performer took a show train 
to the Municipal Stadium in Cleve- 
land, Briggs Field in Detroit and 
Soldier Field in Chicago. In Como’s 
troupe were Nat King Cole, Julius 
LaRosa, Patti Page, Sarah Vaughan, 
Ray Anthony, Archie Bleyer, Ralph 
Marterie, Jill Corey Mitchell Ayres, 
the Four Lads, Roy Hamilton and 
others. Howe says that the troupe 
drew 87,000 paid at Soldier Field. 


Peter Mennin Appointed 
To ASCAP Board of Dir. 

NEW YORK — Peter Mennin, Presi- 
dent of the Juilliard School of Music 
in New York, has been appointed to 
the Board of Directors of ASCAP, 
Mennin, a composer member of the so- 
ciety since 1946, will finish the unex- 
Mennin, a composer member of the 
society since 1946, will finish the un- 
expired term of Deems Taylor, who 
has resigned from the Board. 

In addition to serving on the Ad- 
visory Committee of ASCAP, Mennin 
is president of the Walter W. Naum- 
burg Foundation, a member of the 
Board of Directors of the American 
Music Center, Composers Forum; a 
member of the National Institute of

Center Council. He also served as a 
member of the State Department’s 
Advisory Committee on the Arts, as 
well as on the evaluation panel for 
the New York State Council on the 
Arts. 

His compositions include seven 
symphonies; concertos for piano and 
orchestra and ’Cello and Orchestra; 
works for chamber orchestra and 
string orchestra; works for chorus, 
soloists, and orchestra; numerous 
other compositions for various choral 
combinations; chamber music and

W. Coast Sales Head 
Named By Pickwick 

NEW YORK — Cy Leslie, president of 
Pickwick International has an- 
nounced the appointment of John J. 
Pavlove as director of sales for the 
West Coast area, with headquarters 
in the firm’s Hollywood offices.

wick’s distrib and sub-distrib sales 
and liaison in the eleven-state area of 
California, Washington, Oregon, 
Utah, Idaho, Colorado, Arizona, Ne- 
vada, Montana, New Mexico and

Pavlove comes to Pickwick from an 
18-year association with Brason As- 
sociates of Chicago, as executive 
vice-president. In this capacity, he 
developed the company’s children’s 
record business. Brason is said to 
have introduced kiddie disks into 
chain store toy departments and into 
both record and non-record outlets. 
In the last several years Brason As- 
sociates has also achieved recogni- 
tion as a wholesaler of both paoer- 
back and children’s books, channeling 
their major activity into the educa- 
tional field. 

Leslie called the appointment of 
Pavlove, “an important step in our 
increasing emphasis on our West 
Coast operations. Pavlove is not only 
an administrator of the highest cali- 
bre, he brings with him extensive 
experience in a broad variety of 
merchandising and sales.”

both Muntz “C” units has been re- 
duced by $10. “The dramatic increase 
in our sales volume,” said Muntz, 
“has enabled us to transfer these 
savings directly to consumers. The 
prices are now in effect and are avail- 
able nationally at all Muntz dealers.”

to^flgton-Palace’s Nice; 
England Will Swing With 

Country iusic Sounds 

NEW YORK — Before 1966 is ended, 
there’ll be a country music boom in 
England. This is the assertion of John 
Rice, general manager of the world- 
wide Burlington-Palace Music pub- 
lishing company. 

Rice, based at the firm’s London 
headquarters, was scheduled to leave 
Montreal last Sunday (6) for home 
after a whirlwind trip to the U.S. and 
Canada to visit firms that B-P repre- 
sents on a global basis and conclude 
deals for individual songs for inter- 
national (U.S. and Canada excepted) 
exploitation. 

B-P specializes in country music 
catalogs, Nice noted in an interview 
with Cash Box last week. He feels 
that England has the greatest poten- 
tial for country music in Europe, and 
indicated that a surge in country 
music sales is on its way. Roger Mil- 
ler, he pointed out, is a smash artist 
there with his country-pop repertoire. 
However, the artist who really opened 
the door to country music in England, 
Nice said, was Ned Miller with his 
“From A Jack To A King.” While the 
country sound is extremely popular 
in France and Germany, Nice said 
that country songs in the two markets 
must be cut in French and German in 
order to succeed. England, he went 
on, offers a direct, no-language-bar- 
rier outlet for American-made coun- 
try disks. 

Some of the U.S. country music 
catalogs B-P handles are Tree, Tucka- 
hoe (the late Jim Reeves firm, now 
managed by his widow, Mary), Jack

Kismet Sets HQ, 1st Single 

PITTSBURGH— Stan Eddis’ recently 
formed Kismet label has moved to 
permanent headquarters in the Penn- 
Sheraton Hotel, suite 394, in Pitts- 
burgh. Eddis. formerly with World 
Artists Records, is ready with his 
first release, a Kama-Sutra production

The exec said he will be traveling 
throughout the U.S. seeking masters 
and talent for the label. Also, a sub- 
sid company, Promotion Unlimited, 
will bring recording and TV personali- 
ties to Pittsburgh for concert appear- 
ances. 


and Jec. In the pop field, B-P ex- 
ploits Four Star and Almo, the A&M 
label’s publishing company. 

On his trek, his first to the U.S., 
Nice visited New York (4 days), 
Nashville (2 days), Memphis (1 day), 
Los Angeles (3 days), San Francisco 
(2 days), back to L.A. (1 day) and 
Montreal (2 days). Nice praised the 
“fantastic hospitality” of the music 
men he had occasion to meet with on 
his trip. Accompanying Nice on his 
city-to-city tour was Mimi Trepel, who 
handles the U.S. end of the B-P opera- 
tion. Nice said he intends to make 
more frequent trips to the U.S. 


‘La Mancha,’ Surprise Hit 
From Theater To Cast LP 

NEW YORK— “The Man From La 
Mancha,” the surprise hit of the 1965- 
66 musical season so far, has turned 
into a sleeper entry for the Kapp 
label. 

Kapp which issued the original cast 
album of the Dale Wasserman-Mitch 
Leigh-Joe Darion musical, just before 
Christmas, claims a best-seller on its 
hands, with top demand already a fact 
in the New York area, and sales ac- 
tivity being noted in many parts of 
the country where word of the show 
itself is just now beginning to hit. Set 
is #82 on this week’s LP chart. 

Key New York dealers all noted 
strong sales impact for the album, 
Kapp reports. Ben Karol, head of 
King Karol Records, said, “the album 
is selling very well but the amazing 
thing is what’s happening out of town. 
We ran an ad in the New York Times 
three weeks ago and we’ve gotten 
orders with checks from almost every 
state in the Union. And we’re still 
getting mail orders. It reminds me a 
little of ‘West Side Story’ which 
started slowly, built up momentum 
and has been selling ever since. This 
could be another one just like that.” 

Korvette’s record chief, Dave Roth- 
feld, put it this way: “‘Man Of La 
Mancha’ has been a smash for us. It’s 
the best of the new Broadway season 
by far and we’re getting a good reac- 
tion in several of our out-of-town 
stores, particularly Hartford, Phila- 
delphia and New Jersey.” 

Alma Kaye, record manager for the 
Doubleday Book Shops, called the 
album “one of our real bread and 
butter items right now. Frankly, it 
was something of a surprise to us. 
It’s selling very well and it’s right up 
there with the top Broadway things 
like ‘Fiddler’.” 

A spokesman for Colony Record 
Shop called “La Mancha” “a strong 
seller and the best of the season. It’s 
outselling the next closest competitor 
by about two to one.” 

Sam Stolen, vice president at 
Goody’s, called the set “a good steady 
seller and undoubtedly the best of the 
new Broadway season.” The sentiment 
was echoed by a spokesman for Lib- 
erty Music Shops. 


20th C-F Tracks Bring 
Bernie Wayne to Coast 

NEW YORK — A bevy of soundtrack 
product is on its way from 20th Cen- 
tury Fox Records. Bernie Wayne, 
A&R director of the label, has just 
returned from the west coast, where 
he huddled with studio execs of 20th 
Century Fox Pictures to map out 
plans on the tracks. 

They will include “Batman,” the 
hot TV’er produced by the film com- 
pany, and such feature film tracks as 
“Our Man Flint,” “Bloomer Girl,” 
“Fantastic Voyage” and others. 

While on the coast, Wayne turned 
out lyrics to two main-titles, “Our 
Man Flint” and “A Patch Of Blue.” 
Wayne’s been lucky with the word 
“blue,” having penned the standard 
“Blue Velvet.” 

Besides his duties for the label, 
Wayne is writing a musical version 
of the old Broadway vehicle, “Death 
Takes A Holiday.”

CHARLES TREPEL 

NEW YORK — Charles Trepel has 
been named national sales manager 
of Command Records, according to 
Loren Becker, general manager. Tre- 
pel, who started with Grand Award 
Records in 1954, has been involved 
with various aspects of the company’s 
operation. His first Grand Award as- 
signment was mid-west sales; from 
there, Trepel returned to head the 
eastern sales division, and later be- 
came head of production at Com- 
mand’s New Jersey factory. 


Prestige Releases 
6 LP's For Feb. 

BERGENFIELD, N.J. — Prestige 
Records announced last week that 
their new product for Feb. totals six 
albums. 

The Package leads off with “Hot 
Barbeque” by Brother Jack McDuff 
and includes “Introducing Eric Koss 
with Don Patterson,” “Soul Blues” by 
Lightnin’ Hopkins, Charles Mcpher- 
son’s “Con Alma,” “Feelin’ Good” by 
Pat Bowie and “Afro-Soul/Drum 
Orgy” with A. K. Salim. 


Thumbs Carllile 
Pacts With Smash 

CHICAGO — Guitarist Thumbs Carl- 
lile has been signed to recording con- 
tract with Smash Records, according 
to the label’s veep and product man- 
ager, Charles Fach. According to the 
company, the signing is based on the 
reaction that the vet guitarist has 
been getting while working with 
Roger Miller on the singer’s appear- 
ances. The label is rush-releasing an 
LP to introduce Carllile, who has 
been with Miller for about two years. 


Some twenty-six years Walt Disney 
produced “Fantasia,” a Hollywood 
milestone which brilliantly fused clas- 
sical compositions by such masters as 
Bach, Beethoven, Stravinsky, etc. 
with realms of color animation. The 
flick, which was the initial, pioneer- 
ing effort in multi-channel stereo 
techniques, featured Leopold Stokow- 
ski conducting the Philadelphia Or- 
chestra. “Fantasia” served (and is 
still acting via its innumerable re- 
vivals) as a springboard to introduce 
countless thousands the world over to 
classical music who might have other- 
wise never had the opportunity to 
enjoy it. 

In 1959, shortly after the inception 
of the Disney record arm, the original 
soundtrack was released on the Vista 
label. Despite the time lag of seven- 
teen years separating the film and 
album, the handsomely-packaged, de- 


luxe 3-disk set became an immediate 
consumer favorite. To date, the pack- 
age has sold over 50,000 units which, • 
of course, equals an individual disk 
sale of 150,000. Presently, the col-- 
lection moves along at the healthy 
clip of 5,000 pieces a year. 

But that’s only part of the story. 
Since the release of the soundtrack > 
the label has issued excerpts from 
the score in almost every possible » 
form of record reincarnation, ranging 


in scope from 49^ EP’s to there sep- *j 


arate LP’s. All of this varied product 
has been made available simultane- 
ously with the 3-record set. 

Two years ago the company re- 
leased a kiddie LP featuring “The 
Nutcracker Suite” and a coupling of 
“Peter And The Wolf” with “The A 
Sorcerr’s Apprentice” on its Story- I 
teller line. Both of these “Fantasia”- 
derived albums have proven tre- 
mendously successful. The children’s 
album has already passed the 50,000 ^ 
sales-mark while the latter disk has 
sold in excess of 30,000 copies. Each 
LP is a steady catalog seller. 

Obviously, “Fantasia” has many v* 
lives, most of which should be around 
for sometime to come. 


Musicor Rushes Singles

nale with “Trouble,” the tricky num- 
ber from “Music Man.” Before he

similar high-grade quality.

Richmond Pubberies Leave 
No Copyright Unturned 

NEW YORK — A cursory glance at 
this week’s Top 100 will indicate a 
number of hot publishers who are 
reaping handsome mechanicals and 
performance monies via single record 
hits. Obviously, the intrinsic value of 
any copyright is considerably en- 
hanced by current record activity. But 
as hits are the ‘bread’ of contem- 
porary music publishing, the ‘butter’ 
is certainly the active expoitation of 
older non-chart songs. 

Howie Richmond, president of the 
22 TRO pubberies, is one such bread- 
and-butter music man. The Richmond 
firms have recently acquired more 
than a dozen sturdies and are aggres- 
sively px-omoting all of them. Heading 
the list of these vintage copyrights is 
the Italian standard, “Come Prima.” 
Among the other noteworthy songs 
that the organization has purchased 
are “Only You,” “Walk Away” and 
“Afi’ican Waltz.” 

On the renewal front, activity has 
also been brisk. A substantial number 
of new recordings have been picked 
up on the songs, “I’ll Get By,” “I 
Don’t Know Why,” “Mean To Me,” 
“Love You Funny Thing,” and others 
by Roy Turk and Fred Ahlert. TRO’s 
Ci’omwell Music has worked closely 
on this group of tunes with Fred 
Ahlert Music which controls the 
Ahlert interests in the songs. 

Currently, TRO’s Hampshire House 
Music is actively pushing the new 
Bobby Darin Atlantic single of “Silver 
Dollar,” a standard tune acquired 
several years ago through the pur- 
chase of the Hampshire House cata- 
log. 

The firm’s Ludlow Music recently 
made an advance in this area by ac- 
quiring the renewal rights to the 
songs of Alex Wilder. Included is 
“While We’re Young” with lyrics by 
Bill Engvick and music by Wilder. 
The tune comes under the control of 
Ludlow in five years. 

The evergreen “Carolina Moon” has 
been recorded since the Cromwell re- 
newal acquisition by such key artists 
as Connie Francis, Dean Martin, 
Percy Faith, Acker Bilk, George Ham- 
ilton and many others. 


Northbeach Debuts 
With Three Singles 

SAN FRANCISCO — Northbeach Rec- 
ords has made its debut with three 
singles: “Someone To Love” b/w 
“Free Advice” by the Great! Society; 
“El Jefe” (The Chief) c/w “The 
Corner Bullfight” by Little Juarez; 
and “I Think It’s Time” b/w “No- 
body But Me” by the Chosen Few. 


Steele & Green 
Sign With Hilltop 

NEW YORK — Joe Abend, general 
manager of Hilltop Records, a subsid. 
of Pickwick Int., has announced that 
the c&w label has signed Larry Steele 
and Lloyd Green. 

A steel guitarist, Green’s instru- 
mental master, “Green Strings,” was 
purchased by Hilltop and is now being 
shipped. Steele has already been re- 
corded by Aubrey Mayhew and his 
first Hilltop single will be released 
this week. Both Steele and Green have 
been signed as writers to Barmour 
Music.

Steinway Honors Serkin's 
30th Anny Of U.S. Debut 

NEW YORK — The House of Steinway 
has observed the 30th anniversary of 
Rudolf Serkin’s public debut in the 
United States and his first appearance 
with the New York Philharmonic by 
presenting the renowned pianist with 
an engraved silver tray. The presen- 
tation was made by Henry Z. Stein- 
way, president of Steinway & Sons, 
at Philharmonic Hall on Jan. 25, im- 
mediately following the Pension Fund 
Concert of the New York Philhar- 
monic at which Serkin was soloist. 

The silver tray is engraved with 
themes from Mozart’s Concerto in B 
Flat, K. 595, the work the Columbia 
Masterwork artist chose for his New 
York Philharmonic debut, and Brahms 
Concerto No. 2 in B Flat, his selection 
for the 30th anniversary concert. 
The presentation, which took place in 
Philharmonic Hall’s Green Room, was 
witnessed by officials of Steinway and 
the New York Philharmonic. 


Columbia Masterwork Push

as Leonard Bernstein’s recording of 
his own “Chichester Psalms,” Carl 
Nielsen’s Symphony No. 3 and Leo- 
pold Stokowski’s recording of the 
Ives’ Symphony No. 4, as well as fa- 
vorite recordings of established sym- 
phonies, concertos and ballet suites. 

Paul Myers, Columbia Masterworks 
A&R producer, narrates the album, 
giving information about each selec- 
tion, the composers, and the perform- 
ing artists. 

Featured on the special fold-over 
jacket are reproductions of sixty al- 
bum jackets. Fifty of the albums se- 
lected were critic’s choices of the best 
Masterworks recordings issued in 
1965. Critical comments from such 
leading publications as the New York 
Times, Time magazine, Saturday Re- 
view, High Fidelity and HiFi/Stereo 
Review are included with each repro- 
duction. The remainder of the jacket 
is devoted to ten January releases, in- 
cluding Mahler’s Tenth Symphony 
with Eugene Ormandy and the Phila- 
delphia Orchestra and Leonard Bern- 
stein’s recording of Beethoven’s 
“Eroica,” both of which are currently 
on the best-seller charts. 

Columbia’s “The Sound of Genius” 
is the first audio-visual classical cata- 
log specifically designed by a record 
company to aid the consumer in pur- 
chasing classical recordings. It fills 
a void, the company believes, created 
by the self-service merchandising 
trends of the past decade, which have 
left only a few retailers staffed with 
knowledgeable classical-record sales- 
men.

IN THE SAME OLD WAY (2:36) [Frame, BMI— Penn, Oldham] 
THE LONG BLACK VEIL (2:40) [Cedarwood, BMI— Wilkin, Dill] 


BOBBY BARE (RCA Victor 8758) 

The vet country hit-maker is a cinch to zoom up the charts lickety- 
split with this excellent new Victor stand dubbed “In The Same Old 
Way.” The cut’s an easy-going, chorus-backed tearjerker about unhappy 
t of. fella who spends his days carrying the torch for his ex-gal. On the flip 

the Bare offers an emotion-charged reading of “The Long Black Veil.”

Slim Whitman is a natural to duplicate this recent “More Than Yester- 
day” triumph with this excellent re-working of “Straight From Heaven.” 
The songster dishes-up the nostalgic, tender romancer in a sincere, 
heartfelt style. Watch it closely. On the flip Whitman offers a haunting 
reading of “The Twelfth Of Never.” 


PERMANENT WAVE (2:00) [Combine, BMI— Couch, Bowman] 
DOWN HERE WHERE THE HURT BEGINS (2:28) 
[Combine, BMI — McDuff] 

ORVILLE COUCH (Monument 915) 

Orville Couch has many hits in the past and he can certainly do Top 
50 business once again with this power-packed newie. The “A” side 
here, “Permanent Wave,” is a rhythmic, medium-paced heart-throbbing 
down-home blueser. Loads of potential here. “Down Here Where The 
Hurt Begins” is a pretty, slow-shufflin’ tradition- styled lament. 


I’M GONNA SLIP AROUND ON YOU (2:12) 

[Central Songs, BMI — Taylor] 

TODAY IS NOT THE DAY (2:16) [Central Songs, BMI— Taylor] 
MARY TAYLOR (Capitol 5582) 

Tunesmith Mary Taylor can rapidly establish a name for herself as a 
singer and record saleswoman on the basis of this top-drawer affair 
labeled “I’m Gonna Slip Around.” The side is a rollicking, fast-moving 
ditty about a determined gal who serves notice of her guy that if he 
cheats on her she’ll do the same to him. “Today It Not The Day” is an 
easy-going, tradition-oriented country woeser. 


Looks like the Statler Bros, will go the dual-market success route 
with their new Columbia stand dubbed “My Darling Hildegarde.” See 
pop reviews. 


BOB MORRIS (Challenge 59324) 

(B+) I BUMPED INTO IT (2:08) 
[4-Star, BMI — Burgess] 
Quick stepping happy go lucky ditty 
about a guy who ran away from love. 

(B) ORDINARILY (2:02) [4-Star 
BMI — Morris] Easy going 
tear jerker. 


VAN GIVENS (Musicor 1145) 

(B+) DREAM TRAIN (2:12) [For- 
ster, Newman, ASCAP — Bask- 
ette, Newman] Medium paced tune 
about the dreams of one of our fight- 
ing men. His Dream Train is going to 
be taking him home. 

(B) TO EACH HIS OWN (2:27) 
[Paramount, ASCAP — Living- 
ston, Evans] Quick moving reading of 
the oldie. 


ROSE MADDOX-TINY HARRIS 
(Cathay 315) 

(B-f-) AS LONG AS I LIVE (2:25) 
[Acuff Rose, BMI — Acuff] 
Full bodied twangy pledge of true 
love. Sentimental lyric with top notch 
reading by the pair. 

(B) ONE DAY AT A TIME 
(2:20) [Pamper BMI — Nel- 
son] Twangy medium-paced ditty. 


VERN STOVALL (Longhorn 567) 
(B-f) BREAK TIME (2:19) [Saran, 
BMI — George] Soft tender 
melody about a poor guy’s breaking 
heart. Sweet tune should get lots of 
action. 

(B) WRECK OF THE OLDS 88 
(1:40) [Saran, BMI — Mc- 
Bride, Ball] Take off on the classic 
tune. 


LARRY DIAMOND (Allstar 7324) 
(B-f) STRANGER IN ABILENE 
(2:58) [Cedarwood, BMI — 
Bryant] Newcomer Larry Bryant 
makes a good bid for hitsville with 
this fine, drama-packed story of a 
gunslinger who terrorizes an entire 
town. May be a winner. 

(B-f) NATCHEZ TRACE (2:30) 
[Burdette, BMI — Wayne] 
Undercut is a turbulent tale of feller

Gigliola CinquetH and Domenico Modugno, winners of the 16th San Remo Contest with “Dio Come Ti Amo," are pictured on stage immediately after their triumph. Both artists have 
won the contest before. Modugno in 1958 with “Volare” and 1959 with Ciao “Ciao Bambino" and in 1962 with “Addio Addio.” Cinquetti rocketed to international stardom 
after winning the event in 1964 with “Non Ho L’eta.” Modugno, who also composed the winning song, records for Cemed-Carosello and Gigliola Cinquetti for C.G.D. Winning song 
is published by Ed Curci. “Volare,” it will be recalled, really put the San Remo Festival on the map. It was released in America on the Decca label.

The language of music is universal. That’s why CBS Records is heard— 
and understood— throughout the world. Our vast classical repertoire, 
performed by the finest artists on record, is acclaimed by audiences 
around the globe, from Chile to Canada, from Austria to Australia. 

When an exciting classical LPcatches fire, it spreads across continents, 
jumping on best-seller charts and winning Record Academy Awards. 

“An Historic Return-Horowitz at Carnegie Hall” is a good example. 

Or it may be recorded in Denmark with an American conductor, 
and zoom to the top of both U.S. and European charts. Case in point: 

Carl Nielsen’s Third Symphony (“Sinfonia Espansiva”) performed by 
Leonard Bernstein and the Royal Danish Orchestra. 

Or a chamber ensemble can originate in Italy, win acclaim from 
Belgium to Bulgaria, record a new album in Switzerland and receive 
instant bookings for its first United States tour. The group: I Solisti Veneti. 
The CBS Records LP: “Four Concerti for Festive Occasions” by Vivaldi. 

Obviously CBS Records and its affiliates all speak the same dynamic 
language. Let’s talk. You can leave your dictionary at home.

SCANDINAVIA: 


DENMARK 

Latest releases from M 0 rks Musikforlag include Anette with the French tune 
(in Danish) “Aimezvous Les Pommes,” titled “Jeg Ka’ Godt Li’ Aebler” b/w 
“Slap Nu Af Og Fald Ned” (Make The World Go Away) on Triola, and the 
Overlanders on Pye with “Michelle” b/w “Cradle Of Love.” Anette was one of 
the artist in the local Danish Song Festival Feb. 6 th, when she sang a song 
titled “Melodien Kan Findes,” written and composed by Vilfred Kjaer. 

Local label Ecco, handled by Ecco Records at Gasvserksvej 10a, Copenhagen 
V. has been reorganized - recently and is now headed by Erik Haaest. It 
promises to be a lot more active in the future. First release under the new 
management is Joe E. Carter’s Group with “Half As Much” b/w “I’m Gonna 
Change The World.” Ecco will be distributed by I/S Dansk Grammofonplade- 
forlag (Sonet). 

Latest releases from Sonet include two albums, one with Erling Bl 0 ndal 
Bengston playing Vivaldi, Boccherini and Beethoven. The other is with author 
Benny Andersen “Reading Benny Andersen.” A satirical EP with Caesar is 
described as a contribution to today’s sex and pornography discussions. 

NPA (Nordisk Polyphon Akts.) is following up the recent tour here by the 
Deejays with special promotion given their Polydor recording “Coming On 
Strong” b/w “Dimples.” NPA has also rushed out “To Whom It Concerns” with 
Chris Andrews on Decca, who at the moment is topping the local charts with 
his “Yesterday Man.” 


FINLAND 

Finland will be represented at this year’s Eurovision Song Contest in Luxem- 
bourg next March by a song titled “Playboy,” composed by Ossi Runne with 
lyrics by E. Linnavalli. Oy Musiikki-Fazer-Musik Ab is publisher of the tune, 
which is a modern ballad dealing with the American magazine with the same 
name. First recording available so far is with Ann Christine on Scandia. The 
local Finnish Song Festival took place here on TV January 22nd. 

Martti Piha of PSO (Pohjoismainen Sahko-Oy), one of the two EMI-distribu- 
tors in Finland, reports that the company’s local lark Katri Helena for the 
second year has been voted most popular Finnish female recording artist by 
the radios listeners in Finland. According to Piha, her latest recording, a 
modern polka titled “Polkkis,” might very well help her to win the same 
popularity poll for a third year. The tune is the winner of a “Polka For Katri 
Helena” (Polkka Katri Helenalle) competition among Finnish tunesmiths. It 
was arranged by PSO, and the winning tune was composed by Einari Porvali 
with lyrics by Lauri Jauhiainen. Levysavel Oy is publisher of the song. Other 
news from PSO is that the company just contracted folk singer Jukka Kuop- 
pamaki. The recording trio Anki, Bosse & Robert has recorded the Russian 
oldie “Stenka Rasin” for PSO, a record with good chances here, according to 
Piha. 

Latest local releases from Scandia-Musiikki Oy include “Playboy,” this year’s 
Finnish Eurovision Song Contest contribution b/w “Pieni Sana.” The former is 
sung by Ann Christine and the latter by Danny. Fazer is publisher of the 
former and Edition Coda of the latter. Hector has recorded “Palkkasoturi” 
(The Universal Soldier), b/w local tune “Pikku-Kalle,” the former published by 
Southern Music AB in Sweden and the latter by Scandia. Laila Kinnunen has 
done two local titles “Naitko Sen?” and “Muistojen Bulevardi.” Stidit has 
waxed “Tulitikkulaatikollinen Onnea” b/w “Pienen Pieni Tuli-Tulitikku,” also 
local tunes. Four Cats have done “Han Joka Maaraa” (The Cincinnati Kid) 
b/w “Suurten Uutisten Paiva” (It’s Good News Week). All are on the Scandia 
label with Scandia-Musiikki Oy as publisher of the last six titles. 

Popular Finnish radio program “The Caleidoscope” has compiled some of its 
annual polls, and the following results are now available. Foreign Female 
Vocalists: 1 Sandie Shaw, 2 Joan Baez, 3 Rita Pavone, 4 France Gall, 5 Millie, 
6 Marianne Faithful, 7 Caterina Valente, 8 Connie Francis, 9 Siw Malmkvist 
and 10 Cilia Black. 

The Finnish Female Vocalists result in the following: 1 Katri Helena, 2 Anki 
Lindqvist, 3 Tamara Lund, 4 Laila Kinnunen, 5 Carola, 6 Teresa, 7 Ann Chris- 
tine, 8 Eija Merila, 9 Annikki Tahti and 10 Eila Pellinen. 

Foreign Male Vocalists showed the following result: 1 Elvis Presley, 2 Cliff 
Richard, 3 Donovan, 4 Paul McCartney, 5 Mick Jagger, 6 John Lennon, 7 Bob 
Dylan, 8 Umberto Marcato, 9 Barry McGuire and 10 P. J. Proby. 

The result of more of the polls being compiled will be available at a later 
date. 

The Swedish Song Festival of 1966 took place Jan. 29. Ten songs appeared 
in the competition, and the winning song will represent Sweden at the Euro- 
vision Song Contest at Luxemburg next March. 

When the artists had presented the ten songs, 11 juries in 11 Swedish cities 
gave their points to the song or songs they liked best. Each jury could vote 
either on three songs (five points to the best, three points to the next best and 
one to the third one on their list) or six points to the best and three points to 
the next best. A third alternative was to give all their nine points to one song. 

When the jury had completed their voting, song number six, titled “Ny 
Gammalvals” (New Oldfashioned Waltz) topped with 26 points. It was com- 
posed by Bengt-Arne Wallin with lyrics by Bjorn Lindroth. The song is pub- 
lished by Sonora Musikforlags AB. Lill Lindfors and Svante Thuresson sang 


-j it as a duet. 

Second with 19 points was “Monte Carlo,” also composed by Wallin with 
* lyrics by Carl Gyllenberg and sung by Carli Tornehave. At third spot came 
“Vinterrosor” (Winter Roses) with 14 points, written and composed by Britt 
j-> Lindeborg and sung by Gunnar Wiklund. 

Other tunes in the competition included “En Ballad For Langesen” (A 
~~ Ballade From Long Ago) (fourth with nine points) composed by Robert Meyer 
with lyrics by Gbsta Rybrant; “Var Finns Du?” (Where Are You?) (fifth with 
eight points) composed by Ulf Bjorlin with lyrics by Lars Forsell. The former 
was sung by Ann-Louise Hansson and the later by opera-singer Gunilla af 
Malmborg. “Harliga Sondag” (Wonderful Sunday) (sixth with eight points) 
A was composed by Bo Goran Edling with lyrics by Peter Himmelstrand and 
sung by Carli Tornehave; “Hej Systrar, Hej Broder” (Hello Sisters, Hello 
Brothers), written and composed by Ake Gerhard (seventh with six points), 
was sung by Svante Thuresson. “En Rod Vais” (A Red Waltz), composed by 
" Kerstin Bergstrom with lyrics by Jan Hansson (eight with five points), was 
sung by Monica Nielsen. “Varens Vindar” (Winds Of Spring), composed and 
J written by Torbjorn and Maud Lundquist (ninth with four points), was sung 
by Gunwer Bergquist. And, finally at 10th spot was “Vad Har Jag Kvar” 
(What Do I Have Left?), composed and written by Berndt Ost and sung by 
Gunnar Wiklund. This song wasn’t given one single point by any of the juries. 

It is impossible to predict Sweden’s chances in the Song For Europe contest

“Michelle,” David & Jonathan’s vocal adoption of the key number from the 
Beatles’ “Rubber Soul” album, was rush released by Columbia here following 
up its entrance on Britain’s Pop-50-parade. 

Bovema’s sales promotor Aart Lamberts reports that sales are still zooming 
for monaural and stereo recordings by the late organist Cor Steyn. The com- 
pany had special repertoire leaflets distributed on a large scale among retail- 
ers, underlining the artist’s exclusive ‘Magic Organ’ albums, on which buyers’

Bovema’s Atlantic told CB that Sonny & Cher’s “Sing C’est La Vie” released 
with “Just You” is catching on very strongly in Southern Dutch provinces. 

HMV artist Toon Hermans will launch his new ’66 one man show on Mon- 
day February 21 in Tilburg. Hermans, for this 10th O.M. show, will be mixing 
his best parts from previous shows with newly written acts and songs. Per- 
formances in Heerlen and Nijmegen will further be setting the pace for his 
Amsterdam-Carre premiere. 

Parlophone’s “Rubber Soul” album is making a real Gulliver’s Travel in 
Radio Veronica’s single-hit 40 this week. 

Stateside hit the stands with new repertoires by the Strangeloves (“Cara- 
lin”), the Toys (“Attack”) and Johnny Thunder’s “Everybody Do The Sloopy.” 
Capitol rushed out albums by Wynn Stewart and Sinatra (“The Connoisseurs 
Sinatra”). 

Next to its big money making “Rubber Soul” LP, the Beatles’ million sellers 
album, Parlophone had records out by the Fourmost, the Roulettes and Peter 
Sellers. The latter is doing his comical view of “Help” and “A Hard Day’s 
Night.” 

With Carnival on the doorstep, Toon Hermans wrote a carnival song for 
“De Kemeleers” entitled “Vroag d’n Hier Ins Wat’r Vaan Mich Welt Drinke,” 
(Ask The Gentleman What He Wants To Drink From Me) recorded by Im- 
perial. 

On February 16th the Swingle Singers will give a performance at The Con- 
cert Gebouw, Amsterdam. The concert will be organized and financed by the 
vocal group itself. Pierre Fantosme, the group’s manager, cooperated in this 
respect with Phonogram, the Dutch company representing Philips. The Swingle 
Singers are contracted to the label and for it they have done “Jazz Sebastien 
Bach,” “The Swingle Singers Going Baroque” and the famous Mozart-album. 
Phonogram has started a most intensive sales-action by means of close co- 
operation with leading Dutch dealers, cinema’s and via newspapers and other 
publicity. 

Popular Greek vocal and instrumental quintet the Athenians are under 
Philips contract. Their first LP was released via Philips’ Phonographic Indus- 
tries in the special Folkmusic series. The five musicians started three years 
ago in small harbor-cafes at Piraeus, where they met with songstress Nana 
Mouskouri, now a top-star in both America and Europe. Phonogram has 
planned a recording in Holland of The Athenians together with Mouskouri in 
February. Greek folk-music, instrumentals and vocals are tremendously popu- 
lar here. 

The “Ameriachi” sound of Herb Alpert’s Tijuana Brass is clicking in Hol- 
land. Slowly but surely Alpert’s instrumental hits like “Taste Of Honey,” 
“Whipped Cream,” “Lonely Bull” and “Tijuana Taxi” are gaining public at- 
tention rapidly. There is a fairly good chance, John Ros of Decca Holland told 
Cash Box, that “The Ameriachi craze in America may also develop into some- 
thing big in Holland during the next half year. In that case, the planned 
Tijuana tour to Europe next fall will come at the right moment.” 

The Rolling Stones have a Gold hit in the Dutch market with “Satisfaction.” 

Negram’s guest last week was Jim Bailey from Pye Records Ltd. Bailey 
stayed for a couple of days to discuss the possibilities of releasing Pye records 
for the near future. Bailey also presented, together with Kellerman and Oeges, 
two special evenings for the American forces, with a one-hour Sinatra show. 
This show was accepted with such great enthusiasm that Negram decided to 
work out special dealer days on which the show will be presented. 

Pye records are doing extremely well on the Dutch charts. Perhaps by the 
influence of Radio Caroline, Radio London and Radio Veronica, the Dutch 
charts are coming closer to the British ones. “Michelle” for instance, now in 
top position in England, is climbing very fast in our country and reached no. 17 
this week. This version by the Overlanders will certainly be able to reach the 
Dutch top 10 next week. 

Vogue France has decided to release an LP by the Motions, and they also 
plan to release the first big single by the Motions, “Wasted Words.” 

From the Hansa label, Marion’s “Er 1st Wieder Da” is beginning to sell all 
over the country. This German bestseller has good chances in Holland. All 
important deejays have decided to give this record special plugging. 

In one of our previous columns we told of Russian records under German 
control. Critics from Holland awarded the last edition of “Luister” 8 records 
7 stars, which is the highest possible rating. Another 12 records are ready for 
release in February. 

Chris Andrews was in Holland to make a special guest appearance on the 
popular AVRO TV show “Moef Ga Ga,” the Dutch “Shindig.” Chris sang his 
big hits “Yesterday Man” and “To Whom It Concerns.” The show was on the 
air January 31st. 

Another visitor to our shores was Donovan. This young man is very famous 
here for his recordings of “Catch the Wind,” “Colours,” “Universal Soldier,” 
and he is currently scoring with his double decker “Sunny Goodge Street” and 
“I’ll Try For The Sun,” both from the LP “Fairy Tale.” He appeared in “Fan- 
club,” a VARA TV show with high teenage ratings. Donovan arrived at Schi- 
phol airport on February 4th, a week after the release of his new British 
single “Superlove,” a tribute to John and Paul. 

Brandsteder of Inelco-Holland N.V. told Cash Box of the success he has with 
“The Sound of Music” campaign. In co-operation with the 20th Century Fox 
film organization a family singing competition has been organized with lots of 
prizes: a free trip for the whole winning family to Salzburg- Austria; Arena 
television and radio set, etc. The campaign started in the key cities, and all 
the families had to sing DO-RE-MI either in English or in Dutch. 

The campaign is supported by television and radio. There is also advertising 
in news and music magazines, and this campaign for the RCA Victor LP “The 
Sound of Music” is most promising. 

Peter Nero visited Holland for a whole week and what a success! All the 
newspapers, magazines, and music periodicals paid a lot of attention to this 
famous American maestro. The first of three television transmissions was re- 
leased last week, and with that recording he conquered Holland. The second 
show will be broadcast in February or March. These shows last for about one 
hour. Nero also appeared as a special guest in a Rene Sleeswijk TV’er Joseph 
Cusatis on drums, Barre Philips on bass and the Cosmopolitain Orchestra of 
Jos Cleber accompanied him. Also a radio recording has been done and will be 
transmitted within a short time. Dolf v.d. Linden and the Metropole Orchestra 
guaranteed the best possible success to the radio listeners. 

It has been a great trip and we all hope to see him (and Stan) back soon.

January 20th was the premiere date for Holland of the Paramount Picture 
“The Sons Of Katie Elder” at Tuschinsky Theatre in Amsterdam. It stars 
John Wayne and music is composed by Elmer Bernstein. CBS recently released 
a single with the title-song of the movie sung by Johnny Cash, and in the near 
future CBS will also release the original soundtrack LP recording of this movie. 

The Lords, CBS’ new local beat group, were well received at the press party, 
organized by CBS and held at the Grand Hotel Gooiland in Hilversum. Radio 
& TV officials, members of the Dutch Press as well as local dealers attended 
this party. The group consists of 4 boys: Bert, Eric, Freddy and Harry, and 
their very first CBS single, “Belinda” c/w “People Wonder,” is receiving 
strong airplay, and is expected to hit hard on the local market. 

Artone, recently appointed ESP disk distributor in Benelux, has released a 
first batch of albums from the catalog this week. Artists featured include 
avant garde jazz players Albert Ayler, Pharaoh Sanders, Byron Allen, Ornette 
Coleman, Paul Bley, Giuseppi Logan, Bob James, Ran Blake, Sun Ra and the 
New York Art Quartet. Both Coleman and the New York Art Quartet appeared 
in concert in Amsterdam, October 1965. The initial record release has met with 
very favorable reaction.

Marie Laforet in “Julie Creve-coeur” b/w “A Demain My Darling,” and new 
albums by Nino de Murcia, Christian Arabian and a French Free Jazz Group.

“Sur Up Air De Paris,” in which he presents some of his former hits as well 
as material from his latest album for the label, including his own song, “Chan- 
son Pour X,” shown locally over the VARA TV network this week. To date 
Artone released 5 EPs and and 2 albums by the world famous singer movie 
star from his own production series.

from the forthcoming Netherlands Film Production International release 
“10:32,” starring Linda Christian and directed by Arthur Dreifuss. The movie 
introduces two recent vocal discoveries, 22-year old Daniella and 18-year old 
Eddy Jones, who are seen in a nightclub scene and heard in special material 
composed by vet song writer Joop Portengen. In conjunction with the movie’s 
first local showings, Funckler this week issued Daniella’s recordings of “Perry” 
and “Beware, Beware, Beware,” as well as Eddy Jones’ etching of “My Kinda 
Heaven.”

Big news of the week is undoubtedly the take-over of the Vic Lewis Organi- 
zation by Brian Epstein’s Nems Enterprises Ltd. From February 1st, Lewis 
joins the Board of Nems Enterprises and the artistes previously handled by 
him will now automatically come under the control of Nems. Artistes include 
Donovan, Johnny Keating, Henry Mancini, Matt Monro, Nelson Riddle, David 
Rose, etc. Under a separate arrangement, the British representation of art- 
istes contracted to the General Artists Corporation of America will pass to 
Nems under the supervision of Lewis in his new appointment. Artistes involved 
in this merger include Herb Alpert, Tony Bennett, the Everly Brothers, Buddy 
Greco, Steve Lawrence, Roger Miller, Johnny Mathis, etc. 

. Disk sales in October 1965 were valued at £2,538,000 and were one-fifth 
higher than in October 1964, according to the latest Board of Trade figures just 
published. Home sales which, in the previous three months had been below the 
levels of a year earlier, were about one-fifth higher than in the corresponding 
month of 1964. Export sales continued to increase and were one third higher 
than in October 1964. Production of 45 r.p.m. disks continued to rise and, for 
the first time since September 1964, exceeded the figures for the corresponding 
months a year earlier. Output of 33% r.p.m. and 78 r.p.m. disks was also higher 
than in October 1964. 

We regret that in our issue of January 29th the Kinks “Till The End Of The 
Day” single was omitted from the British charts. Apologies to the artistes, Pye 
Records and Belinda Music. 

After 23 years with Keith Prowse, one of this country’s largest chain of 
retail stores, Walter Woyda is leaving to take up a senior executive position 
in the marketing division of Philips Records. His appointment is effective as 
from February 1st. From 1962 to 1964 Woyda was Chairman of the Record 
Retailers’ Association. 

Pye Records have taken over the United Kingdom distribution of the Ameri- 
can Joda, King and Hanna Barbera labels for release on the Pye International 
label. First issue will be a James Brown single “I Got You,” which earlier this 
year reached the No. 2 position in the Cash Box Top 100. At the end of 1965, 
Brown had a big success in Britain with his “Poppa’s Got A Brand New Bag” 
single released by London. 

The Tony Hatch penned Petula Clark recorded “My Love” now hitting the 
Top Ten in America for the Reprise label is issued here on Pye. It is another 
success for the talented duo. Pet recently appeared in “Sunday Night at the 
London Palladium” TVer, and shared honours with French star Sacha Distel 
in “An Evening with Pet Clark and Sacha Distel” TV presentation on BBC 2. 
Distel featured his latest British release “Sexy” issued on H.M.V. Later this 
month Pet will visit America for three months of cabaret engagements. 

Cliff Richard added yet another facet to his glittering career when he opened 
in cabaret at London’s Talk of the Town nitery on January 31st, backed of 
course by the Shadows. Not only is Cliff still at the top of his profession after 
eight years, but he still tops popularity polls not only in Britain but all over 
the world. He has established himself as a film star and his appearance in the 
London Palladium pantomine “Aladdin” last year broke all box office records. 
He is soon to transfer this success to film. Through the years Cliff has won 
four Gold Disks (one million sales) and 19 Silver Disks (250,000 sales). The

Fred White tips C.B. to the fact that Bo Diddley is currently cutting a new 
Chess LP during his appearance at Toronto’s Le Coq D’Or. It’ll be an audience 
participation session. Jerry Palmer was set for the TV coast to coaster, “She- 
bang,” (2/3). The young Gaiety artist, currently clicking with “Walking The 
Dog,” has also been signed for a P.A. at Disneyland. The label has just re- 
leased a second single, featuring a California group, the Dudes. Reg Ayres 
and Ed Lawson, Quality men in Winnipeg and Toronto respectively, are off 
and running with air promotions to tie in with the new Herman’s Hermits song 
in the MGM soundtracker, “When The Boys Meet The Girls.” “Listen People” 
will not be released as a single, but it is sure getting single-type action in all 
areas for Quality. Ayres and Lawson have set up contests with deejays at key 
stations in their areas to promote the single-in-the-album. LP’s will be offered 
as prizes in hopes that the album cut will receive play as a single, from the 
spinners. CKPR deejays have added an extra incentive to their version of the 
contest by tieing in with the local movie exhibitor for the picture’s run at The 
Lakehead. They will give away theatre passes as well as soundtrack LPs. Ed 
Lawson has high praise for a Barry single just released by Beau Hannon. 
“Stop Me From Falling In Love” is getting pick hit treatment on the Niagara 
frontier, reports Lawson. Canadian talent moves ahead, but good. Lawson re- 


CANADA (continued) 

ports that the good female vocal group, formally billed as the Girl Friends, 
are about to debut on MGM with a goodie that as yet x-emains untitled. They 
will be billed from now on as the Willows. 

Trev Kidd, veteran spinner at Canada’s Lakehead on CKPR, has moved on 
to the early morning slot at Kingston’s CKLC. “These Boots” by Nancy Sina- 
tra looks as if it’s top ten material for sure. Rave chart action comes from all 
Canadian spinners on the single. Barry Paine will have hot singles a plenty all 
over the charts very shortly. Ronnie Dove’s good Ballad, “When Liking Turns 
To Loving,” is getting heavy air play and chart listings everywhere. Paine 
will have one of the biggies in the “Batman” sweepstakes with the Warner 
Bros, outing by the Marketts. Another excellent side on Warner Bros, is 
Jimmy Durante’s latest, “One Of Those Songs.” It’s a big favorite with mid- 
dle of the roaders and top pop spinners alike. 

Dean Martin is a sure bet for chart honors with his newie on Reprise, “Some- 
where There’s A Someone.” Trini Lopez appears to have a big chart outing 
this time around with “Made In Paris.” It’s getting much air play in Canada’s 
midwest and west. “The Dedication Song” by Freddie Cannon has been an in- 
stant winner with teen-type spinners. The kids really dig Freddie’s new W.B. 
outing and can’t hear enough of it, according to spinners that have been in 
touch with C.B. recently. 

Patty Duke and Bobby Goldsboro, Patty singing a song that Bobby wrote — 
“Whenever She Holds You” — figure to break the chart scene wide open in 
short order. It looks as if February is going to be a very busy month for 
Paine at Compo in Montreal, and his Toronto counterpart, A1 Mair at Apex. 
Luckiest man on the Canadian record front of late must certainly be Spai'ton’s 
Harold Pounds. He has been out of the reach of all of this cold, snowy weather 
in beautiful Miami. Pounds has been attending the ABC-Paramount meetings.

Cash Box — February 12, 1966' 








GERMANY 


Once again polls are in the headlines as two major magazines listed their 
top stars of the year. The leading juke box trade paper “Automaten-Markt” 
picked their winners for 1965 and the following artists ended up on top: 


Male Singer 

1. Ronny — Teldec 

2. Draft Deutscher — 

Teldec 

3. Peter Alexander — 

Polydor 

t Orchestra & Instr. Group 

1. Nini Rosso — Hansa 

2. Roberto Delgado — Polydor 

3. Jorgen Ingmann — Metronome

2. Manuela — Teldec 

3. Petula Clark — Vogue 


Vocal Group 

1. Sam The Sham & The 
Pharaohs — MGM 

2. The Rolling Stones —

3. The Five Tops — Philips 


Top Juke Box Hits 

1. II Silenzio — Nini Rosso — Hansa 

2. Downtown — Petula Clark — Vogue 

3. Kenn Ein Land/Kleine Annabell — 
Ronny — Teldec 

4. Wooly Bully — Sam The Sham & 
The Pharaohs — MGM 

5. Das War Mein Schoenster Tanz —

6. Kiisse Nie Nach Mitternacht — Siw

8. Fraeulein Wunderbar — Peter Alex- 
ander — Polydor 

9. Santo Domingo — Wanda Jackson — 
Capitol 

10. Heute Male Ich Dein Bild, Cindy 
Lou — Draft Deutscher — Teldec 

The poll showed that although US and British music is still a factor in the 
maiket, the local artists lead the way. Indie producers took a nice slice of the 
cake as Ronny for Teldec is produced by Horst Fuchs independently, and 
Draft Deutscher along with Manuela are handled by Peter Meisel’s Hansa 
Productions. The top hit of the year, “II Silenzio” was also on Peter’s Hansa 
label. Five of the artists listed are released through Teldec, 3 of the artists 
aie handled by Polydor, and Metronome, Vogue, Philips and Hansa which 
Ariola distributes each had one artist. Of the top 10 tunes, 8 of the 10 were 
German vocals with only 4 of the songs being local copyright tunes. One 
English vocal and one instrumental took the other two places. Three Teldec 
records finished in the top 10 with Polydor having 2, and Ariola, CBS, Elec- 
trola, Metronome and Vogue each having one. 

The other poll was the yearly readers poll of the teenage magazine “Musik 
Paiade. The magazine divided the poll into foreign and local sections with 
the following results:

HAPPY BIRTHDAY— One of the most 
active figures in the German music 
business, Theodor O. Seeger of Peer- 
Southern Music recently celebrated 
his 75th birthday. Seeger has headed 
up the publishing firm since its start 
in Germany some 10 years ago. 



NEW LOOK — E.M.I. and Radio Lux- 
embourg executives recently attended 
a luncheon at London’s Dorchester 
Hotel to mark the label’s “new look” 
1966 programmes on the commercial 
station. Seen in this photo taken at 
the gathering are (left to right) 
Geoffrey Everitt, general manager of 
Radio Luxembourg (London), deejay 
Alan Freeman, the label’s Geoff Bridge 
and spinners Don Moss and David 
Jacobs. 


This poll, which represents the teenage fans, showed a sti-ong tendency for 
the new folk-beat style although hard beat is still king. Four of the 6 top 
deejays listed were foreign such as Camillo from Luxemburg and Charley 
Hickman from the U.S.A. Chris Howland from England, and Mai Sondock 
from the U.S.A. were the top 2 local D.J’s 

The Elite Special label has released 10 new classical albums in their low 
priced line for $2.50. 

Peter Alexander started his 15th year as a record star with his first single 
I’elease for his new Ariola label. Ariola is also pushing the first single in 
German in several seasons from the Danish youngsters Jan & Kjeld, who -have 
recorded a vocal version of “A Taste Of Honey” in the Herb Alpert style. 

Radio Luxemburg has announced the winners of their “Lion” awards for 
the most popular artists of the year. The gold lion for first place went for the 
first time to Udo Jurgens for his song “17 Jahr Blondes Haar” (17 years old, 
blonde hair). Udo, who writes his own tunes and has had several international 
hits, is managed, published and produced by Hans R. Beierlein of Montana 
Music. The artist will also represent Austria for the 3rd time in the “Song For 
Europe” Festival in Luxemburg. Udo is released here by Vogue. The silver 
lion for 2nd place went to newcomer Roy Black for his hit, “Du Bist Nicht 
Allein.” The young artist had a smash with the disc for Polydor. The song 
is published by August Seith and his producer is Hans Bertram. Third place 
and the bronze lion went to Draft Deutscher for “Marmor, Stein & Eisen 
Bricht.” The song which sold over % million discs is released by Teldec. 
Publisher and producer of the hit is Peter Meisel. 

That’s it for this week in Germany.

Basilio Alves, who is now heading the promo department of Discos Mocam- 
bo, tells us; about the latest activities of the company: a special promotion for 
a special single produced by the represented Kapp label, was presented in lo- 
cal theaters when Wal Disney’s “Mary Poppins” was playing. The promo in- 
troduced the Do-Re-Mi, choral interpreting the two excellent numbers from 
that film: “Chim Chim Chree” b/w “SuperCaliFragilisticExpiAlidocius.” . . . 
Silvio Caldas, the beloved “Seresteiro” (serenader), had a retirement party in 
the biggest stadium in the world, the “Maracana.” He has new recordings pro- 
grammed for the label; his latest release, “0 Seresteiro,” now has a stereo 
version. . . . One of the best-selling discs of the company is a single in which 
French chanter Guy Mardel interprets his hit “N’Avoue Jamais,” presently on 
the charts. . . . This song has a Brazilian version by Almeida Rego, which is 
sung by Mario Cesar in another single on the Mocambo label, with the orches- 
tra of Waltel Blanco, who also did the arrangements. The other side has a 
Beatles’ hit, also in Portuguese by Aluizio Morais, “And I Love Her,” which 
has the title “Mas Eu Te Amo.” . . • Marpar is the number one label in Para- 
guay, and will now be represented in Brazil by Mocambo. The first l’eleases are 
on the way. . . . Another represented label, this one from the USA is Kapp, 
and the album that is bound for success is by pianist Roger Williams, who al- 
ready had two hit LPs and appears now with “Summer Wind.” . . . The clas- 
sical field is well represented with an album of the represented Supraphon 
label of Czekoslovakia, with the Czek Philharmonic Orchestra interpreting 
from Debussy “La Mer” and “Spanish Rapsody” by Ravel, under the direction 
of Roger Desormiere and Constantin Silvestre. 

Eric Skinner, general manager of RCA Victor and Ramalho Neto, A&R and 
promo man of the company, returned from Mexico where they attended the 
very important RCA Victor Latin American Record Licensee’s Convention. 
They were delighted not only with the hospitality of the “RCA Mexicana” but 
also with the results of the Convention itself. The possibility of a bigger ex- 
change between subsidiaries and licensees of the company is being intensified 
and good results will come out of it for each country- The execs could haye a 
real picture of the possibilities of the Brazilian music in the South-American 
markets. The only two songs that were interrupted by applause were “Preciso 
Aprender A Ser So” (which we predicted in precedent columns that would be- 
come an international hit) and “Carcara”; this last number will be taken to 
the US and recorded by Harry Belafonte. It was also discussed and planned 
that the first Youth Festival will take place in Mar Del Plata, sponsored by 
RCA Argentina. Each country will send one representative and Ronnie Cord 
will be the Brazilian artist. Through negotiations in this convention, a bigger 
exchange of artists from the Latin-American countries will be effective and, to 
start with Ramalho informs us that Hermanos Castro, Acevez Mejia and 
Jose Feliciano are already scheduled to appear in this country in the near 
future. Also talked about was a stronger cooperation between the pubberies of 
RCA in all countries, which will facilitate the promotion of local music in 
other markets. 

One of the high points in this reunion is, no doubt, the conference by George 
R. Marek, considered to be an expert in the record industry. He predicts what 
will happen in that field in the following years. 1. The record industry will 
grow enormously, since people will feel the necessity of having it constantly 
in their homes. 2. There will be a bigger reciprocity and exchange of artists 
and music between the countries, due to developing communications — also, 
with the development of the country, its music will also grow and soon Latin 
America will see some of its artists and music acknowledged internationally. 

3. The biggest buyer being young people, this too will enlarge record sales- — in 
the next 10 years the Latin American population will grow about 30%, and in 
1975 it will reach the 64 million figure (of each 100 persons in South America, 
76 are under 15 and this number will increase to 80 in the next 10 years); this 
alone would be a reason to predict health and vitality to the record industry. 

4. Technical progress will be the feature of the future for the disc industry. 
RCA is spending 300 thousand dollars yearly in research, and there is no 
doubt that, be it in stereo or Dynagroove or other innovations, the quality of 
the future recordings will get better and better all the time. 5. New forms of 
distribution will increase record sales, not only in record shops but also in 
supermarkets, book-stores and drug-stores. At the same time as the “Record 
Clubs” will grow in number, increasing the direct sales. 6. With the increase 
of the stereo recordings, the monaural will eventually disappear in South 
America as it is happening in the US. 7. As is happening in the States, Latin 
American countries will see in the future that as much as 80% of the record 
business is connected with the LP, which is taking the place of the single. 8. 
The next step in music is recordings installed in cars. New appliances with 
tape cartridges are having extraordinary receptivity in the United States (Ex.: 
RCA’s “Stereo & Cartridge,” “Audiophonic,” etc.), because more and more 
time is being spent in cars. In the next 3 years music in cars in the USA will 
be as big a business as the record is now. 9. “See and Listen,” both in record 
and tape, will be a commercial reality within 10 years in the US and will then 
take over Latin America. 

News from Odeon comes from the promo dept, of the company in Sao Paulo 
and its head Orlando Stefano. TV actor Hugo Santana has a new single with 
the theme of a very popular “Soap Opera.” . . . Teen chanter Tony Campelo 
reappears with a good single of which the strong number having good airplay 
is a Portuguese version of the old favorite hit “South Of The Border,” which 
received the title “Pertinho Do Mar” b/w “O Meu Bern So Quer Chorar Perto 
De Mim.” . . . One of the most famous and best impersonators in Brazil, Oscar 
Ferreira, appears with a single where he proves that he has a strong per- 
sonality as a singer. . . . Three other releases in the singles field that are of 
general appeal are by romantic ballad singer-composer Tito Madi, comedienne 
Alcina Maria and traditional rhythm “Marchinha” as sung by one of its best 
interpreters, Jose Messias. Another satyrist of much fame is Moreira Da Silva 
and the single now released will sell well as all his other discs do. Traditional 
ballad chanter Orlando Dias is aso present with a single. Teen-songster Teddy 
Milton and Brazilian vocal quartet of the big-beat the Golden Boys also has 
singles. 

Marcos Nobili is in charge of promo for Discos Fermata and informs us 
about the latest releases of the label: from the represented Motown label, two 
North-American beat groups have been introduced to the Brazilian public: 
Martha & The Vandellas and The Four Tops. Released is a double-compact 
titled ' That Motown Sound.” Another US label also represented is Red Bird 
and the single in question is by the Shangri-Las with “Give Us Your Bless- 
ings” b/w ‘Heaven Only Knows.” With the great success of their albums, 
V-s>: Alpert and his Tijuana Brass will see their single “A Taste Of Honey” 
aid "E: Garbanzo” jump to the first spots of the charts. . . . The American 
be: ; selling group the Supremes is also present with an excellent album “A

Tribute To Sam Cooke,” a well deserved homage to the late great composer. 
. . . Taking advantage of the popularity of the soap-opera on local TV, Fer- 
mata is releasing a double-compact with “Amor Eterno,” “Biondina,” “Tema 
De Thula” and “O Preco De Uma Vida” of the serial of the same name. 

The same source of information tells us about the latest new Discos RGE 
releases. “Fados Do Meu Portugal” is the name of an album by Germano 
Rocha, released in France by the rep label Barclay, featuring new and tradi- 
tional Portuguese folk songs with accompaniment by a guitar group from 
Coimbra. . . . Another represented label, Dot, has an excellent LP for the 
Pat Boone fans, with Billy Vaughn in such favorites as “Red Roses For A 
Blue Lady,” “Dear Heart” and “The Girl From Ipanema.” . . . When Bienveni- 
do Granda was recently in Brazil he cut especially for RGE a double-compact 
now under release with three Brazilian numbers sung in Spanish: “Plegaria 
A La Virgen,” “Perdoname Amor” and “Teoria De Un Enamorado” plus “Sin- 
ceridad.” . . . One of the favorite performers of Rio is no doubt Helena De 
Lima, who appears with a single with two of the best numbers from her al- 
bum “Uma Noite No Cangaceiro.” . . . Teen idol Erasmo Carlos, one of the 
best-selling artists of 1965, appears with a single “Alo Benzinho,” a dedication 
to the upcoming Mother’s Day. It will surely reach the charts. . . . The double- 
compact of the new instrumental and vocal beat group from Rio de Janeiro, 
the Silvery Boys, is in great demand in all teen-music programs. 

Very interesting is the finale of the “I Certame Amador Estudantil de Musi- 
ca Brasileira Moderna” contest (1st. Amateur Student Contest of Brazilian 
Modern Music), sponsored by Rado Gazata, Televisao Excelsior-Channel 9, 

S.P.,” Casa Kosmos in collaboration with RCA Victor. New names, faces, voices 
and soloists of doubtless value appeared on the stage and brilliant composi- 
tions were interpreted by professional artists including Djalma Dias, Dorothy 
and Walter Santos. An excellent orchestra consisted of some of the best solo- 
ists of Brazil such as Walter Wanderly (piano), Carlos Alberto (flute and 
baritone sax), Mazzola (flute and tenor sax), Demetrio (soprano sax), Arru- 
dinha (drums), Bill (trombone), Papudinho (trompette), Bororo (tuba), 
Gabriel (base), under the direction and arrangements of maestro Francisco 
Moraes. The awards went to the following amateur-student artists: for best 
soloist (guitar) Mario Lobo Campos, instrumental small groups (men) Formu- 
la 3 (Corrado, Tadeu and Eduardo); (girls) Bossa Cor De Rosa (Eliane, Rosa 
Maria and Marlene); singer, Neide Maria Do Nascimento; and best composer 
Marcio Neggri, for his number “Christina, Azul No Olhar.” 

We said that Joao Gilberto, one of the Brazilian artists who conquered the 
US public (best record of the year “Getz-Gilberto,” triumphant personal ap- 
pearance at the Village Vanguard in New York, rewarding contracts with 
recording companies such as Verve), would have his own program for a few 
days at the Teatro Record in Sao Paulo, after his presentation of “O Fino da 
Bossa” in the same theater. But Joao never opened. After having prepared 
himself to present to his countrymen all that he had been doing with such 
success in the United States for four long years, Gilberto became ill, probably 
due to nervousness and excitement, which somehow nearly paralized his vocal 
muscles. Joao Gilberto is a very special artist, a man who takes his profession 
so seriously that he studies each sound that comes out of his mouth, to give 
as perfect a performance as he possibly can. All he does is carefully studied, 
and his artistry is a long proven fact. But the public and especially the local 
press did not want to understand the young man, who is one of the best am- 
bassadors of the Brazilian music outside Brazil. All sorts of conjectures, false 
published news, misunderstandings created such a bad atmosphere for Gilberto 
that “pope” of Bossa Nova left the country sad and disappointed, looking for 
a more understanding audience, which he found in the United States. In the 
last few days here, only a few intimate friends saw the couple (Gilberto is 
married to Eloisa Buarque, sister of the composer of the same name). Those 
included newspaperman-composer Denis Braen, Bob Corte-Real, director of 
TV-Record and Adail Lessa, of Discos Continental, an old pal of Gilberto to 
whom, he says, he owes a great part of what he is today. Although Joao is 
still considered one of those directly responsible for the present movement 
of the Modern Popular Music of Brazil, it is true that, while he was away 
perfecting his original style and scoring successes, the MPM itself overcame 
the Bossa Nova phase and created new facets. The younger people got used 
to a more modern “bossa,” and in some ways, MPM doesn’t have the same 
feeling for the Gilberto mood. This fact was probably what subconsciously 
placed Joao in such a poor emotional condition. We wish that his nightmare 
will be forgotten and that Joao Gilberto will get well soon and resume his 
successful career.

Cash Box — February 12, 1966- 


■International Section 



ARGENTINA 


Although everybody knows that in many cases the summer is the best time 
for hits, during January and February most people slow up and take holidays. 
It’s also good time for looking around and studying the state of the market, 
and we feel it may be of interest for the International readers to have an idea 
about what’s going on these days in Argentina. 

All the information regarding top artists and tunes has been presented in 
Cash Box’ Directory and Christmas Issues; thus, here we will discuss other 
points, like current trends, main languages and international relations. As a 
matter of fact, one of the most interesting things for study is the long period 
of sales the tunes may reach, something that has always been under doubt. It 
is more or less customary to consider in Argentina, and other countries too, 
that now hit records last only overnight; however, “Que C’Est Triste Venise,” 
“Ho Capito Che Ti Amo” and “No Quisiera Quererte” lasted more than six 
months each in the Top Twenty, with overall sales passing the 100,000 mark, 
although in the third case this was obtained by considering all the versions 
available (more than ten). In another case, Frank Pourcel’s “Avec” started as 
a strong seller about three months ago, and is still at the top, after a Christ- 
mas period where it fell a bit because of other powerful seasonal tunes. It is 
gaining renewed force with Charles Aznavour’s version in Spanish. In general, 
it may be said that as soon as a tune reaches a sure-fire level, it will remain 
among the top tunes for a good time. 

Some local artists feel uncertain about the language they should use for 
their recordings. The reason is that the average record buyer (or TV viewer) is 
exposed to records and TV programs coming from all countries, sung and 
spoken in English, French and Italian, besides Spanish. “Studio Uno,” for 
instance, was aired completely in Italian, without a single word translated to 
Spanish. One of the reasons of the little success of previous Ed Sullivan pro- 
grams was the tendency to expose a local emcee instead of Sullivan, and with 
Spanish explanations. After Mina’s programs, many local larks have started 
to sing “Solos,” the main theme, in Italian, and “Shame And Scandal In The 
Family” has several recordings in English. Dalida’s French waxing has also 
sold well. However, it must be noted that local tunes in Spanish still have a 
good part of the market, although a big share belongs to folk tunes. On the 
pop side, most of the big teen stars of 1963 have vanished, with the exception 
of Palito Ortega, Juan Ramon and a few others. 

The export of local recordings is still a touchy subject. Because of economic 
reasons, it is still unpractical to build a complete studio with up-to-date equip- 
ment, according to international standards. At the same time, this is the main 
reason for the lack of a strong current export, since recording costs in Argen- 
tina are rather cheap, and local musicians may easily adapt to every sort of 
music. In a recent chat with us, maestro Pocho Gatti pointed out that the 
quality of local studios is still far from satisfactory. It could be added that 
perhaps there is also some lack of interest, since several record producers have 
a rather poor opinion of the possibilities of the export market, mainly in the 
European countries. Since this problem is also found in other Latin American 
countries, the current product finds no difficulties in these markets. 

Relations with foreign labels are also having some trouble because of two 
reasons: the restrictions for sending hard currency to other countries and the 
little use for many catalogs in this market. Several foreign labels have been 
abandoned during the past couple of years because their product was of little 
use here, and because operating costs were too high. In other cases many 
foreign labels switched their representatives here, not always with advantage. 
As it was repeatedly demonstrated, the dollar increase is a poor measure of the 
quality of a representative. On the publishing side, foreign houses continue to 
ask high advance payments, curtailing the possibilities of their own tunes since 
no one will try unknown songs if the risk of losing money is high. The best 
way to solve this, at least partially, has been signing catalog contracts, but of 
course this covers only a part of the songs that are available. 

Another important fact that arose in 1965 was the value of TV as a promo- 
tional device, not only via direct musical shows, but also carrying tunes as 
background music and part of dramatic shows. Best results were obtained with 
melodies used in programs aimed at women. Curiously, there are no signs of a 
scientific approach to this phenomenon yet.

Constantin Th. Metaxas, general manager of DUS A record company, left 
town to go to Germany, where he will have a meeting with executives of 
Philips Records. Before leaving, Constantin left signed contracts with folk 
singer Alvaro Zermeno and A&R man Romulo Moran. Both of them were with 
Orfeon Records. It is also probable that vocal group Los Dominic will join 
this company. Los Dominic are touring in the north part of the country, but 
later they will go to the United States to perform in New York and other 
cities there. 

Enrique Guzman, still the most popular Mexican singer of the new wave, 
returned to Mexico after more than four months in Spain where he did a 
picture with Spanish actress Rocio Durcal. Enrique will remain around three 
months in Mexico, doing pictures, new recordings at CBS, a tour through the 
whole country and probably a TV series. 

Two important members of the CBS executive staff resigned their jobs. The 
first is Agustin Hernandez, advertising and promotion manager and the second 
is Salvador Arreguin, in charge of the international department who left his 
job to become A&R of the radio chain Radio Programas de Mexico. We haven’t 
heard who will replace them. 

Ruben Fuentes, chief A&R man of RCA, announced that two of the new 
young artists who will be promoted very hard this year will be Lourdes Michel 
and Mayita Campos, two excellent voices with personal style who may become 
favorite artists of the Latin public. 

Angelica Maria, a favorite female singer of Mexico, who three weeks ago 
arrived from Spain where she was filming a picture, left town the past week to 
do a short series of performances in Ecuador. Angelica will be back in town, 
doing new recordings at Musart and performing at TV Ossart. 

Last Sunday (Jan. 30) the fabulous Yorsys, Mexican duet of dancers, singers 
and jokers, who have had the most successful appearances in Spain returned. 
Los Yorsys will stay two weeks in Mexico and immediately after, will return 
to Spain where they left several contracts signed to do pictures with Rocio 
Durcal, Marisol and Pili y Mili. 

Luis Demetrio, the Mexican composer, was named by the Mexican press as 
the best composer of 1965. He gave Lucho Gatica, exclusive for three months, 
his latest song “Vamos a Soportarnos,” which he recorded at Capitol Records 
and performed on radio and TV for the Organization of the American States. 

Capitol Records released an interesting album of the Cuban voices of Bola de 
Nieve, Jose Antonio Mendez and Elena Burke, recorded recently in La Habana 
with some of their most popular creations such as “Mi Ultima Cancion,” “Este 
Hastio,” “Canta lo Sentimental,” “Ay Mama Ines,” “Cemento, Ladrillo Y 
Arena,” “Tu Mirar,” “Tema Eterno” and others. 

Mayte and Pili Gaos had to postpone their performances in Brazil, because of 
the disasters that occurred recently in that country. Mayte and Pili were going 
to receive two awards as the most popular artists of Mexico in that country.

Nippon Victor will release in March the two set album titled Excellent 
Work Of Music You Conduct.” The 27 tunes of the album are played by Ar- 
thur Fiedler and The Boston Pops Orch. Tunes included are “Sleeping Beauty 
Waltz,” “Syncopated Clock,” “Rhapsody Spain,” “The Stars And Stripes For- 
ever,” and many others. An interpretation book, “How To Conduct, written by 
Yoiehiro Omachi, a leading conductor of Japan, and a baton are attached to 
the album so that anybody can pretend to be a conductor. The firm expects 

this album to be a big seller. 10 . ,, 

King Records held a branch-conference during January 11-13 at the mam 
office, where sales achievement of Xmas and the New Year holiday season, 
last-spurt sales activity at the end of financial year, and the sales target ot a 
new financial year (April-March) were discussed. , 

According to the announcement at New Years, the firm showed 15% sales 
increase compared with that of last year. The increase resulted from favorable 
sales of several records such as “Koigokoro,” “Onnagokoro No Uta, and 
“Cocktail Kouta.” This favorable achievement will bring a successful conclu- 
sion to the 1965 sales target. The sales target of the new financial year is 
60 billion yen, 20 percent increase compared with that of last year. 

ABC-Paramount reportedly got the sales rights of Boom Records, King 
Records, and will begin to release those records this April. 

Nippon Victor will present an extraordinary LP release of Poupee lie 
Cire Poupee De Son” on March 15 by Mie Nakao. On the album, the lark sings

AUSTRALIA 


There aren’t many records that sell 100,000 copies in Australia, but Festival/ 
Sunshine records report that local star Normie Rowe has achieved this 
distinction with his revival of “Que Sera Sera.” To mark the occasion, the 
record company is hosting a function in Melbourne for the second Gold Record 
presentation to Normie Rowe; he received a presentation record in Sydney 
when “Que Sera Sera” reached sales of 50,000 copies. These sales mark young 
Normie as the hottest disc property to appear on the local scene during the 
past ten years. The artist is currently represented on our best seller list with 
“Tell Him I’m Not Home.” ^ 

Radio station 3AK, in conjunction with 2UW, 5AD, 6PR and 7HO, will make 
the first presentations in March, of the Australian National Recording Awards. 
The awards will be presented annually from a different capitol city in Aus- 
tralia. According to Henry Gay, program manager of 3AK, the purpose behind 
the awards is the recognition of Australian artists on a national level. The 
first presentations will be made in Melbourne during the forthcoming “Moom- 
ba” Festival at the Myer Music Bowl before an expected audience of 80,000. 
The awards will be presented in the following categories: Best Male Vocalist, 
Best Female Vocalist, Best Vocal Group, Best Instrumental Group, Best Aus- 
tralian Composition, Best Australian Produced Record. 

RCA Records in Australia has developed an attractive new folder for the 
mailing of their promotion pieces to deejays. The folder is known as RCA 
Records Mail Bag. It’s a useful idea for keeping promo literature together. 

Frederick C. Marks, executive director of Festival Records, recently advised 
Cash Box that Joe Halford will join the company on March 1st., in the capacity 
of A & R producer. Halford has spent several years as the manager of Castle 
Music, the publishing subsidiary of EMI. He produced many records for EMI, 
and also had a measure of success as a composer. His many friends in the 
trade wish him well in his new post. 

Astor Records reports that they’re off to a flying start in the sales field with 
the new Petula Clark single “My Love”; the company is also out with the 
album “Petula Clark Sings The International Hits.” They are also ready for 
action with the Overlanders’ version of “Michelle,” when the broadcast restric- 
tion is lifted Feb. 11th. 

Australian folk artist Kathleen McCormack has a new album released on 
RCA which features Australian folk music; the set is called “Waratahs And 
Wattle.” 

With the switch to decimal currency set to take place throughout Australia 
on Feb. 14th, all business is now being transacted in the new coinage. Prices 
are being indicated in dollars and cents on release sheets, press ads, and dis- 
play posters. The change in currency will mean little or no difference to the 
existing price structure for records and music. 

Festival Records reports great sales with the material they have on release 
by the Tijuana Brass. The albums, “Going Places,” “Whipped Cream And Other 
Delights,” “The Lonely Bull,” and “The Best Of Herb Alpert’s Tijuana Brass” 
are all in solid demand. If, as we understand, the Tijuana Brass is to tour 
Australia towards the middle of the year, Festival can well expect even greater 
consumer response to their product. Over the past few months the Tijuana 
Brass has grown enormously in popularity around Australia, and we would 
think a tour by the group would be well received. 

Back with us again in person for a nightclub season is Earl Grant, who has 
won for himself a special popularity place with Australian audiences. Grant 
is a fine entertainer and has the knack of being able to hold the complete 
attention of patrons throughout the length of his act. To coincide with his 
current visit Festival Records is making a big drive with “Stand By Me.” 

For a limited period only RCA is giving away a free color picture (11” 
-rearer of Elvis Presley with each copy sold of their soundtrack album from 
the r- vie “Harum Scarum,” which is now screening in major cities throughout 
the country.

COIN MACHINES & VENDING 


Cash Box 



Editorial 


Recognition for 
European Ingenuity 


Since the early 1930’s, the major share of the coin- 
operated amusement machines in use by operators I 
throughout the world have been designed and built by | 
American manufacturers — the same companies whose ' 
creative and technical knowhow have been responsible 
for those staple products of the trade — the pingame, the I 
shuffle, the bowler and the myriad of other novelty pieces ) 
still in operation today. Cash Box offered the trade a sug- *1 
gestion in this space last fall saying that several game \ 
ideas, created and produced in Europe, might offer either J 
the germ of an idea or the solid foundation for an amuse- 
ment piece that could be refined and manufactured by ' 
Americans for American operators and marketed through f 
the highly effective sales and promotion facilities of the * 

U.S. distributor network. These machine ideas could 

__ < 
either be licensed from the European originator or pur- 
chased outright. After certain necessary modifications 4 
for the American consumer taste, we thought they could 
find a most lucrative market here. J 

During the last week in January, the 22nd annual J 
A.T.E. released a blockbuster on the world trade, dis- 
playing more engineering genius in new amusement 
games in one show than has been seen in many a year. *> 
The portent here is clear — European factories and engi- v 
neers have demonstrated the creative capacity to offer 
the world trade a wealth of machine ideas and profitable 
equipment. *■ 

It should be noted that the majority of the new pieces «*. 
on exhibition during the A.T.E. were fruit machines and J 
multi slot units, all custom designed to conform to the 
United Kingdom’s unique Betting and Gaming Law. Most 
of the remaining ideas on display offered variations on * 
standard arcade pieces and kiddie rides. However, in 
presenting these machines, the proficiency of British, 
German, Australian, French and other nationally manu- 
factured equipment has been established and serves as v 
proof of overseas capacity to one day create, design and 
produce a game to join the august ranks of the pin and % 
shuffle. 

In the manner that British gambling pieces are ex- 
pressly designed to fulfill the provisions of that nation’s 
Gaming Law, so also is the rest of Europe’s coin- » 
operated equipment designed to conform with European 
tastes in structure and design. American tastes differ in 
several respects, which is why it is recommended that 
the European factory, considering the American market ■ 
as a potentially lucrative area for export, speak to our 
manufacturers beforehand about entering into a license 
agreement or selling the rights for re-manufacturing the 
original European piece. 

The inroads being made today by the audio-visual ma- 
chine in the American coin market are getting deeper 
every week. This machine, originally a European idea, is 
now being custom-designed by American factories for 
U.S. operators and is succeeding now where the essen- 
tially European machines did not. 

Britain and the other nations represented at the 22nd 
A.T.E. have the ability and the knowhow to please their 
individual home markets. They also have shown the crea- 
tive ingenuity for producing a prolific number of new ma- 
chine ideas. But they cannot know the American market 
as well as Americans themselves and therefore, the nec- 
essary cooperation between these focal points of world 
trade can be, should be and must be advanced and ex- 
ploited for the profit of all.

ChiCoin Unveils Corvette 6-PL Bowler 

■ First Big Ball Lane Released To The Trade In '66 


Gottlieb Unwraps Masquerade 4'Player; 
Cites Excellent Test Location Collections 






Chi Buyers / Club 
Elects New Officers 

CHICAGO — The Associated Buyers’ 
Club (ABC) of this city and its su- 
burban areas, held its annual meet- 
ing, Tuesday, January 18, in Spargis 
Restaurant. Highlight of the session 
was the annual election of officers for 
the 1966-67 terms of office. There 
was reportedly a 100% attendance 
of the membership at the meeting. 

Wayne Hesch, of A & H Enter- 
tainers, was unanimously elected to 
the presidency of ABC. Kem Thom, 
of Western Automatic Co., is the new 
vice president, and Charles Lindelof, 
of General Music Co., is secretary- 
treasurer. Leon Mohill, Star Music 
Co., is assistant treasurer. 

Directors are: Charlie Sacco, of 
Lee-Nordic, past-president, is a four- 
year director; Sij Jacobsen, Pioneer 
Novelty Co., was elected to a three- 
year term as director; Ray Gallet, of 
Paschke Music Co., is a two-year 
director; and, Dick Nomden, Nomden 
& Sons, was elected to a one-year 
term of office. 


ChiCoin CORVETTE Bowler 

CHICAGO — With all their years de- 
voted to the development and produc- 
tion of coin-operated amusement 
equipment for the international coin 
machine trade it is assumed that Sam 
Wolberg and Sam Gensburg, co-heads 
of Chicago Dynamic Industries, Inc., 
would take it all in stride and chalk 
it all up to another accomplishment. 
However, on occasion they become 
excited and greatly “carried away” 
with a particular ChiCoin game. 

Thus, this past week they expressed 
superlatives of admiration for the 
new “Corvette” six-player coin-oper- 
ated automatic big ball bowling lane, 
featuring the exciting, new “Spot 
Bowling” and the exclusive “Swivel 
Score” back rack. 

It should be further stated here 
that Chicago Coin heralds “Corvette” 
as the initial big ball bowling alley 
release to the trade in 1966, placing 
it alongside of such popular ChiCoin 
coin-operated amusement games as 
“Bel-Air” puck shuffle bowler with 
extended play action, “Texas Ranger” 
rapid fire machine gun, and “Par 
Golf” novelty golf amusement game. 
Incidentally, “Corvette” also features 
the exclusive extended play, which 
reportedly is the proven money maker 
at Chicago Coin, where location tests 
prove that it doubles earnings in 
many cases. 

Mort Secore, sales director of Chi- 
cago Coin, explained to the Cash Box 
reporter, during an exclusive inter- 
view, that ChiCoin’s new “Spot Bowl- 
ing” feature doubles the scores for 
strikes and spares. When the player 
rolls the ball over any one of six 
“Spot Bowl” buttons on the alley, a 
‘spot-hit’ is lighted up on the pin-hood 
glass. A strike made with that ball 
scores double. In the event that the 
strike is not made, the ‘Spot-Hit’ 
light goes out, and the player tries 
again for the “Spot Bowl” button 
with his second ball, to double his 
score for a spare pick-up. 

Other playing and scoring games 
in “Corvette” ball bowler include: 
“Dual-Flash”, “Step-Up”, “Flash-O- 
Matic” scoring, the “Red Pin” game, 
and “Regulation” bowling. 

In “Dual-Flash” scoring the flash- 
ing lights on the playfield travel dur- 
ing the running of the first and sec- 
ond balls shot at the pins. The player 


throws the ball to stop the flashing 
lights at the highest value for strike 
and spare scores. 

“Flash-O-Matic” offers the players 
strike and spare scores as indicated 
by the flashing lights across the pin- 
hood glass. Only the first ball counts 
in “Flash-O-Matic”. This is where it 
differs with “Dual-Flash”. 

In “Red Pin” bowling, an exclu- 
sive ChiCoin bowling game, a strike 
is worth 70 points, and a spare 50 
points. The red pin lights in frames 
3, 6, and 9; and adds 50 extra points 
to the score for a strike made during 
these frames. “Step-Up” bowling is a 
high scoring game whereby strike and 
spare values change and advance 
frame-by-frame. Actually, a strike in 
the first frame is worth 30 points and 
a spare 20 points. The score doubles 
in the second frame, and triples in 
the third frame. Then the scoring 
reverts back in the fourth frame, and 
so on. The score doubles in the 9th 
& 10th frames. 

Considered to be one of the most 
revolutionary developments in this 
type of equipment over the years is 
swivel score rack. In this feature the 
front or the back of the back rack 
can be swiveled to either side for 
simplicity and ease in servicing on 
location. It is no longer necessary for 
two or more servicemen to service 
the bowler. 

“Corvette” ball bowler is simply 
loaded with exclusive Chicago Coin 
cabinet innovations, such as the latest 
in fluorescent lighting, the individual 
name feature for location personal- 
ization. “Corvette” is available in 13 
foot and 17 foot lengths. Extensions 
are also available in 4 and 8 foot 
lengths. 

Secore explained that sample ship- 
ments have been made to Chicago 
Coin’s big family of distributors, and 
are on display and for demonstration 
in the distributors’ showrooms. 


N.Y. Sales Tax 
Test Case To 
Begin Feb. 25 

ALBANY, N.Y.— Millie McCarthy, 
president of the Catskill Amusement 
Co., reported last Wed. (Feb. 2nd) 
that a motion, which has been before 
the Tax Commission in an attempt to 
obtain a final declaratory judgement 
on the application of the new state 
sales tax on juke box and games 
collections, has resulted in gaining a 
test case involving an upstate opera- 
tor and is scheduled to begin Feb. 
25th in Albany State Supreme Court. 
Mrs. McCarthy, meanwhile, urges all 
New York State operators to continue 
reporting their income to the Tax 
Dept, but not to pay any tax until the 
judgement has been obtained.

“A forward and upward lift of the

Company, Chicago, “causes the board 
to ride up easily on a swivel bracket. 
When lowered again, board is auto- 
matically secured by hook-latches. 
The new Elevator Mounting Board 
will be a standard feature of all Bally

CHICAGO — Several years ago the group of Illinois coin machine operators 
shown here gathered in the proverbial “smoke-filled” room in the Morrison 
Hotel (since razed) and laid the groundwork for what is now known as the 
Illinois Coin Machine Operator’ Association (ICMOA). 

They were spurred on by a dire need for unified action to battle a raft of 
harmful, costly legislation which resulted in greatly reduced income from 
machines in locations, and for other pertinent statewide problems. Another 
reason was to assist in returning MOA to its proper stature in the industry 
nationally. This group feels it is serving its purpose to the good of the trade. 

They are shown here in the Holiday Inn East last weekend. Front (left to

Gottlieb MASQUERADE 4PI. 

CHICAGO— There could very well be 
an aura of mystery emanating from 
the busy confines of D. Gottlieb & 
Company, in this city, but there real- 
ly is not. Actually the heads of the 
internationally renowned coin-oper- 
ated amusement games manufacturer 
are going all out to sing the consider- 
able praises of Gottlieb’s new four- 
player “Masquerade” flipper amuse- 
ment game. 

There is, indeed, a distinct mardi 
gras influence, and Alvin Gottlieb 
minced no words in transferring this 
joyous carnival spirit to the Cash 
Box reporter when he unveiled this 
strikingly, colorfully designed and il- 
lustrated game this past week in the 
company’s showroom. 

Before proceeding into the mechan- 
ical aspects contained in “Masquer- 
ade” he stated that the sales depart- 
ment has compiled the most astro- 
nomic and promising collection re- 
ports over the past several months 
from games which were installed in 
random locations throughout this 
country and in foreign markets dur- 
ing the pre-test program. This par- 
ticular method of testing the money 
making potential in Gottlieb amuse- 
ment games has been successfully 
practiced for many years, as an aid 
to the operators in determining the 
earning prospects. 

“It is an understatement for us to 
say that going into the planning, de- 
signing and production (as well as 
sales) stages on a new Gottlieb four- 
player flipper adds considerable emo- 
tion and excitement among the heads 
and personnel in the factory,” Gott- 
lieb asserted. 

There is an exciting colorful anima- 
tion on the light-box. In the playing 
and scoring features a newly inno- 
vated ‘multi-bumper’ spells out 
“M-A-S-K-E-D B-E-A-U-T-Y” on the 


backglass. Completing one word mul- 
tiplies the target value by 10. Scor- 
ing on the playfield moves the ‘Lace 
Fan’ revealing the face of the “Belle 
of the Ball” on the backglass. 

Furthermore, completing both 
words on the light-box multiplies the 
target values by 100. Roto-lights in- 
dicate the values of five targets. Six 
rollovers spot the letters in the word 
“Masked”. 

There is a “Shoot Again” feature 
scored on the targets indicated by a 
‘Roto-Star’ on the playfield. “Mas- 
querade” four-player flipper is avail- 
able with twin coin chutes, and three 
or five ball play. 

The cabinet is very colorfully ap- 
pointed and illustrated, and Gottlieb 
assures coin machine operators that 
it will certainly attract players in all 
types of locations. 

Shipments have been rushed out to 
Gottlieb distributors throughout the 
United States and in the foreign mar- 
kets. Operators are urged to visit 
their nearest distributor to see and 
demonstrate Gottlieb’s four-player 
“Masquerade” flipper amusement 
game.

Multi-Slot And Phono Displays 


22nd Annual A.T.E. 



Report 


First and foremost it must be said that the 22nd Annual Amusement Trade Exhibi- 
tion, which took place in London the last week in Jan. really hit the jackpot. Although 
more difficult of access than the old, more central, venue of the Royal Horticultural 
Hall, Westminster, the new exhibition hall at Alexandra Palace is a great improvement 
and well worth the journey — made easy by a special shuttle bus service arranged by 
the organisers. Attendance on the first day was estimated at over 2,000 and on the 
second day, despite a thick London fog, almost as many visitors passed through the 
turnstiles. 

The immediate impression on entering the hall was one of affluence and prosperity. 
This was confirmed by a tour of the stands occupied by 90 exhibitors. Full advantage 
was taken of the extra space and without exception the stands were well dressed and 
the wide range of equipment attractively displayed. British and foreign visitors alike 
agreed that here was a coin machine exhibition without parallel in America, Europe 
or, indeed, the World. As always, coin men flew in from all over the globe to view the 
show which this year featured a tremendous amount of new and exciting equipment. 
Much of it, of course, unsuitable for export, being designed and manufactured to 
comply with the unique Betting and Gaming laws of the United Kingdom. Generally 
speaking, much of the equipment is an extension of existing trends with the introduc- 
tion of new gimmicks designed to increase player appeal and turnover. To some 
extent the new features are designed to exploit to the very limit of the British Gaming 
Laws. Unfortunately the nearer one gets to the dividing line between the lawful and 
the unlawful the less distinct the line seems to be. It would seem that the limit has 
been reached and in the future, caution should be exercised in order to avoid, willingly 
or unwillingly, overstepping the mark to the detriment of the trade in general. As 
expected and following the trend of recent years, multi slot machines dominated the 
show. 


Immediately upon entering the hall 
visitors were confronted with the 

larger-than-ever stand of Mayfield 
Electronics Ltd. and, as it happened, 
the largest multi-slot machine at the 
exhibition. This was the giant 40- 
player Grand Prix on show for the 
first time in London. With 200 slots 
(5 per player) this Id play machine 
has a car racing motif paying out on 
the first and second place up to one 
shilling. This magnificent piece of 

equipment is 22 ft long by 8 ft 6 ins 
wide and is surmounted by an elabo- 
rate Grand Prix flash and indicator. 
Also on the Mayfield stand were their 
full range of multi-slots including 
three new machines. The Go-Kart, 
Monte Carlo and Louisianna Stakes 
together with the well tried Grey- 

hound Derby and Grand National. 

Rock-Ola were represented on the 
stand of Ruffier & Walker, sole im- 
porters and distributors for the 

United Kingdom. A special section 
devoted to Rock-Ola boxes featured 
the Grand Prix 160 selection with in- 
termix of 33% and 45 rpm disks. Also 


on show were the Rock-Ola console r 
wall phonograph Model 403 100-selec- 
tion stereo-monaural 33 and 45 rpm > 
speeds and the Phonette wall box. 

Millers (Multi-slots) Ltd. featured 
the 20-12-10 play machines, Beat the 
Bank, Royal Derby and Spin-a-Card. 
As always, Philip Shefras was show- 
ing multi-slots including 20 players 
with pontoon and football machines. ( 
Shefras also exhibited a wide range of 
Buckley fruit machines both 6d and 
Id play. Multi-slots were also seen on 
the stand of Alfred Crompton Ltd. 
where a bank of four, three and one 
way Tutti Frutti Id play machines 
attracted much attention. 

For a show notable for a remark- ^ 
ably high standard of display perhaps 
the most elaborate stands were those 
of exhibitors featuring phonographs 
— a move designed, no doubt, to re- 
attract the attention of the buyer and 
restore the sales and prestige of this 
type of equipment. Once the mainstay 
of the A.T.E., the phonograph has, in 
recent years, been somewhat swamped *

Across the aisle, the German manu- 
facturer Lowen Automaten was show- 
ing the new Serenade Festival 130 
selection making its British debut. 
Directors Mr. H. Nack and Mr. G. W. 
Schulze flew in for the show. Another 
German manufactured line, the Sym- 
phonie range of phonographs, were on 
the stand of their sole United King- 
dom exporters and distributors, Sym- 
play Ltd. Included in the range was 
the new Luxus Console 100 selection 
stereo machine manufactured by Th. 
Bergmann of Hamburg, Germany. 

Another impressive stand was that 
of Phonographic Equipment (Distrib- 
utors) Ltd. now successful as a public 
company of high esteem. Here was 
seen the Seeburg range including the 
multi change stereo Discotheque 160 
selection and the Mustang 100. The 
Phonographic range of fruit machines 
included up-to-the-minute 6d and Id 
play models by Sega and Bally. 

Marmatic Sales Ltd. and their dis- 
tributors had one of this year’s show 
stoppers in the Jennings Wild One 
and Lucky Spitfire manual fruit ma- 
chines with two brand new important 
innovations. The front opening door 
and the coin rejector which can be 
opened on site, obstructing coins re- 
moved and replaced without the need 
of a service call. The operator is pro- 
tected because access cannot be ob- 
tained to the cash box or the fruit 
machine mechanism. 

Australian manufactured fruit ma- 
chines attracted visitors to the stand 
of Jubilee Products Ltd., particularly 
the new Classic 6d and 3d play ma- 
chines which were on show for the 
first time. Ainsworth Consolidated 
(G.B.) Ltd. another Australian firm 
exhibited their full range of Aristo- 
crat equipment including the Nevada 
and Olympic. 

Overseas exhibitors making their 
debut at the British show included 
S. A. Rally of France with a range of 
flipper tables and the Rallye France 
specially designed for arcade and 
amusement parks. All equipment is 
manufactured in France. S.A. Rally 
have set up a European distribution 
and Halel Enterprises Ltd. appointed 
for the United Kingdom. 

Also exhibiting for the first time 
Taito Trading Company of Tokyo, 
Japan on the stand of their U.K. im- 
porters and distributors, Shipgoods 
Ltd. Managing Director Mr. F. Den- 
nis Denton reported that the Lucky 
Token two plays for 6d ‘pub’ slot ma- 
chine created tremendous interest, as 
did the Casey Jones kiddie train ride. 

Some of the latest and most appeal- 
ing new machines in the kiddie ride 
class were to be seen on the stand of 
Edwin Hall. The piece de resistance 
for all the youngsters at the show was 
the revolving Dalek 6d space age ma- 
chine with workable ray gun and 
blaster. 

Whittaker Brothers of Oldham also 
showed a range of new machines in 
this category including cars, fire 
engines and animals.

Gordon Marks of Phonographic Equip- 
ment (Distributors) Ltd. in the luxu- 
rious St. James’ suite at London’s 
Royal Garden Hotel and attended by 
700 guests.

ICMOA Meeting 


Attendance Hits High * 


III. Ops Unanimously 
Endorse MOA Proposal 


SPRINGFIELD, ILL.— The Illinois 
Coin Machine Operators’ Association 
meeting, Saturday and Sunday, Jan- 
uary 29-30, in the Holiday Inn East, 
enjoyed its heaviest attendance by 
far over previous such sessions, ac- 
cording to a census taken by the 
board of directors. Saturday morning 
it was already obvious that the at- 
tendance record would be shattered, 
despite subzero temperatures in a 
widespread area. 

Many new members were introduced 
by Prexy Lou Casola during the open- 
ing moments of the big general meet- 
ing Sunday afternoon. Among those 
introduced were: Harold Mozier, of 
Jerseyville; Frank Buscemi, of State 
Line Vending Amusement Co., Rock- 
ford; Robert C. Moriconi, Melody 
Time, Springfield; Pauline Becker, 
Royal Amusement Co., Chicago; C. 
Stout, Serv-Rite Amusements, Chica- 
go; Herschell Taylor, Taylor Sales 
Co., Belleville; Wes Reed, Pleasure 
Amusement Co., Bloomington; Harry 
Losk, Music Box One Stop Records, 
Chicago; Frank J. Del Vecchio, Artis- 
tic Amusement Co., Tolano; and 
Louie A. Edmiston, Modern Distribu- 
ting Co., Springfield. 

In a dramatic gesture after a brief 
address by MOA’s Fred Granger ex- 
plaining the performance rights legis- 
lation problems the ICMOA voted 
unanimously, and by acclamation, to 
endorse the royalty proposal to the 
performance rights societies presented 
by MOA several weeks ago. This fol- 
lowed a step-by-step review of the 
situation over past years by Granger. 

Tragedy struck suddenly at the 
height of the two-day meeting (Satur- 
day afternoon) when Springfield op- 
erator Ted Steskal died in St. Johns 
Hospital after suffering a heart at- 
tack (separate story in this issue of 
Cash Box). With him just before he 
expired was Joe McCormick, of Mu- 
sical Sales Company, St. Louis, 

Missouri. . . 

Regrettably Illinois State Legisla- 
tor (Representative) Zeke Giorgi 
(Dem., Rockford, 111.) was unable to 
attend the meeting due to the adverse 
weather conditions. He was slated to 
address the throng. State Representa- 
tive Oral Jacobs (Dem., Moline, 111.) 
attended the session and was recog- 
nized by the assemblage. Rep. Jacob s 
sons operate H & H Consolidated Co., 

in Moline. , , 

On the dais during the general 
meeting on Sunday were: ICMOA 
Pres. Lou Casola, secretary-treasurer 
Mary Gillette; Clint Pierce, an MOA 
vice pres., and president of the Wis- 
consin Music Merchants’ Assn.; Fred 
Granger, executive vice pres, of MOA; 
Bill Poss, director of ICMOA, and 
five state regional chairman of MOA’s 
membership drive committee; Orma 
Johnson and Earl Kies, ICMOA direc- 
tors. Also, Jack Moran, director of 
the Institute of Coin Operations, Den- 
ver, Colorado. 

Harry Newhouse, an official of the 
Wages & Hours Division, Dept, of 
Labor, discussed the Wages & Hours 
Law and how it affects the coin ma- 
chine industry. He explained after 
considerable detail that the coin ma- 
chine operators are exempt since 
there is no appreciable interstate com- 
merce, and that most operate under 
the $1 million minimum in annual 
gross business. 

Wisconsin’s Clint Pierce, who has 
experienced many years in organiza- 
tional work in the industry presented 
a very strong delivery on the vital 
importance of the type of association 
that is mushrooming all over the coun-

[ Bill Poss made a stirring appeal to

“In this regard, industries, such as

“This we have done, and to very

clared. 

^ Finally, he said: “The best way to 
leet kill an unfavorable bill is in committee

ICMOA can give the proposed me- 
chanics training school program in 
the greater Chicago area. 

He further explained that at least 
75% of the men in his school present- 
ly are completely subsidized by the 
federal government. This includes a 
complete tool kit. 

“We make the final decision on the 
acceptance of students the employ- 
ment service sends us,” he said. “Only 
those students who can satisfactorily 
complete a three-week probationary 
period are accepted for the complete 
program. A big feature of the train- 
ing program is preventive mainte- 
nance. 

The next quarterly meeting of 
ICMOA will be held in the Pick-Con- 
gress Hotel on the weekend of April 
23-24. The board of directors is pres- 
ently deliberating on a program of 
events for this session.

NONE OTHER THAN — Dropping into the Atlantic showrooms on Tenth 
Avenue, we were greeted by Murray Kaye with, “Tell everyone that Popsie, 
the official photographer of the coin machine industry is here today.” Indeed 
Popsie was, already setting up his camera to get shots of the various Seeburg 
products. Asked about the turnout for the seminar on hot drink machines, 
held at the Stadium View Inn, Flushing, NY. Last Saturday, Murray replied *■ 
that more than 80 mechanics and company officers from all manufacturers 
appeared on the scene, that the engineers were really interested in the service 
classes and that much was accomplished. At that moment, Atlantic head 
Meyer Parkoff greeted a man who had just come in, tall, smiling — none other 
than J. Cameron Gordon, president of the Seeburg complex. Gordon’s hand- 
shake was firm and his smile wide. He, Meyer and Murray, walked about the 
showrooms, discussing the machines on view, and then retired to private con- 
ference — but not before Gordon had gone round and greeted every staffer in 
the place. . . . Reports from Musical Distributors, newly franchised with the { 
Chicago Coin line of games, are that the games are moving fast, selling like 
hotcakes. The phone rang for an order of two more games while the Cash 
Box reporter was in the Musical Manhattan office. “See what I mean?” said 
Dave Freed, “We’ve got the best line and they’re really going. We’ve had to 
pull games out of here and send them out to the Brooklyn branch — that’s 
how hot they are. And the Wurlitzer 3000 sells itself. I’ve seen operators buy 
one and then come back for more.” Dave says Texas Ranger and ‘Bel Air’ are r 
really hot. . . . Over at Runyon Sales, Louis Wolberg proudly announced that 
his daughter Pearl would be celebrating her ‘Sweet Sixteen’ party on February 
12th, with twenty-five girl friends to help her have a ball. There’ll be a juke 
and the latest records there, plus a catered supper and a huge cake, all at 
home. Congratulations, Pearl. Louis reports that visitors to the Runyon offices 
included Vincent Galle of Galle Amusement, Yonkers, Frank DeMuro, Empire 
Music Co., Yonkers, and Murray Wollman, A & N Distributors, New York. . . . 
Abe Lipsky says he’s been getting orders for pool tables and (huzzah!) ciga- 
rette machines in Greater New York and the fringe areas; “Looks like they’re 
getting ready for an early spring,” says Abe. . . . Larry Koeppel of Albert 
Simon, Inc., Rock-Ola distribs, reports that although the snow has slowed v 

things down some, they’re still movin’ plenty of music and games. . . . Mike 

Munves reports that messages from on-the-road brother Joe are more than 
heartening — Joe’s been sending back orders and deposits. Yesterday he was 
in Miami, now he’s Tampa bound for the Tampa Fair, where new equipment 
is shown and where everybody in the amusement parks and arcade world 
comes to see what’s going on. Mike’s also happy about the sales in Manhattan 
— they started strong and are going strong. “Joe’s sending back terrific orders 
— terrific!” And we’re moving here.” . . . Lou Druckman at United East Coast, 
when asked how things were going, started to reply, but was interrupted by *■ 
staffer George coming in to announce a customer was there to pick up his 

games. As George loaded the machines, Lou smiled and said, “You see how it , 

is.” . . . 

GLOBETROTTERS — Irv Kaye of the Irving Kaye Co. finished up a stay in 
London where he caught the A.T.E. show and met with several prominent 
members of the European coin machine industry. Out at the factory in Brook- 
lyn, sales director Howard Kaye says he’s worn thin filling out orders for the 
Kaye 6-pocket lineup, while Arnold Kaye keeps the production facilities rolling 
at full steam. . . . Killer Joe Piro, disco-dance master and spirit of Rowe Dis- 
cotheque, will be bringing his ‘Killer Joe Dance Revue’ to Viet Nam where the 
dancers will be entertaining U.S. and South Vietnamese troops. The Killer will 
also be taking a complete Rowe Bandstand phono-speaker ensemble and a 
library of the latest discotheque disks. Says Joe, “The reason it’s got to be 
Rowe is because I think Rowe has come up with the truest, best sound ever v 
created by the Juke box industry and I’m a bug on sound.” . . . Sam Morrison 
of Musical Moments is eyeing up a ski weekend reunion with his WW-II 
Mountain Div. vets association to be held soon in Lake Placid, N.Y. Mean- 
while, work was pretty heavy for the op these past few weeks trying to make 
up for those lost hours caused by the transit strike and service those locations 
he w'asn’t able to get to on time due to the mammoth traffic tieup. . . . First 
Lady of the New York State trade, Millie McCarthy, advises that an operator 
test case to determine the application of that state’s new sales tax on juke 
box and games collections will begin in Albany State Supreme Court Feb. 25th. 

. . . NY UJA’s 1966 campaign has begun.

Jersey Jottings 


THE GENTLEMEN FROM JERSEY — Bill Cannon, Jersey association chief, 
told a Cash Box interviewer that from reports he’s received on plans and prog- 
ress from MOA state chairmen in their membership drive, the final national 
tally should go over the quota of 250. “They all want to bring in the most 
members, and that’s the kind of spirit we need.” Meanwhile on the home front, 4 
Bill is working to form plans to see what can be done about relaxing the 
number and pressure of state licenses on coin operated equipment. “With 432 t 
municipalities, the number of licenses required of operators is almost stagger- 
ing. Certainly there ought to be legislation passed that takes a more reason- 
able and rational view of the industry in this state.” On the subject of little 
LPs, Bill was optimistic. Since his open letter to the trade some months ago 
on the lack of communication between ops and record companies, Bill has been 
working to bridge the gap. Capitol, Monument, Epic and Columbia have all 
released albums especially tailored for the juke box market. Now, says Bill, 
it’s up to the ops. “These albums are not just a polite gesture. There’s money 
in them.” . . . Bert Betti, chief of the Eastern Novelty complex in North Ber- ^ 
gen, said that he will again (!) be expanding — this time he’ll add 8,000 sq. ft., 
a bi-level structure. Top floor will be used for vending and the lower level will 
give his parts and construction shop more room. “I am very pleased about 
sales so far in pool tables. At the sporting goods show in Chicago last month 
I displayed my billiards accessory line and from the l’eaction I got, I expect 
a banner year.” In the meantime I’ve been conferring with the architect about 
designs for the new annex. But I’ll have to put all that aside for this week- 
end — I hear there’s not much sun in Bermuda these days, but I want to get in 
some golf. Just a long weekend. Back on Tuesday morning to the showrooms 
— and the blueprints.”

Chicago Chatter 


Coinbiz activities are ‘snowballing’ at a breakneck pace in a wide area sur- 
rounding Windy City. Now that the ICMOA, ABC and RMSA meetings are on 
the books, and the training school program (supported by MOA) is well on 
its way to becoming a tangible entity, the overwhelming majority of coinmen 
are turning their eyes toward Milwaukee, where the combined factions of the 
Wisconsin Music Mei’chants Assn, and the Milwaukee Coin Machine Operators’ 
Assn, are slated to meet in the Ambassador Hotel, on Sunday, February 20. 
Clint Pierce issued an invitation to all operators, wholesalers and manufac- 
turers in Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois, Michigan and Minnesota to attend _ the 
session as guests. He made this strong request in behalf of Sam Hastings 
and the Milwaukee group as well as the state association. 

From the confines of Chicago Dynamic Industries Mort Secore announced 
to the trade that the new ChiCoin “Corvette” big ball automatic bowler is 
being rushed out to the firm’s large family of distributors. This adds another 
strong coinbiz contender to an already imposing line of profit-makers in 
ChiCoin’s “Bel-Air” puck shuffle bowler, “Texas Ranger” rapid-fire machine 
gun, and “Par Golf” novelty amusement game. . . . Bally Mfg’s. Herb Jones 
informs that veteran Bally engineer Tom Mick, who is a nationally renowned 
judge of quarter horses, took a breather from nickels, dimes and quarters to 
judge the breed at the Sioux Falls, S.D. Exposition, February 5. 

Incidentally, a highlight of the heavily attended ICMOA meet in Spring- 
field was the unanimous endorsement of MOA’s counter-proposal to the per- 
formance rights societies’ efforts to have Congress eliminate the royalty ex- 
emption by the rank and file membership. MOA’s Fred Granger made a mov- 
■ ing appeal for this much needed endorsement. . . . We bid welcome to the 
new members who were accepted by ICMOA last weekend. They are: Frank J. 
Del Vecchio, of Artistic Amusements, Tolano; Harold Mozier, of Jerseyville; 
Dennis Jacobs, of H&H Consolidated, Moline, who joins his brother Don 
Jacobs; Frank Buscemi, State Line Vending Amusements, Rockford; Robert C. 
Moriconi, Melody Time, Springfield; Pauline Becker, Royal Amusements, Chi- 
cago; C. Stout, Serv-Rite Music, Jacksonville; Herschell Taylor, Taylor Sales 
Co., Belleville; Wes Reed, Pleasure Amusements, Bloomington; Harry Losk, 
Music Box One Stop Records, Chicago; and Louie A. Edmiston, Modern Dis- 
tribs, Springfield. . . . We were happy to see Mr. & Mrs. August (Gus) Heim- 
ers, of St. Louis, in Springfield last weekend. 

A new type “Elevator Mountin’ Board” mechanical innovation now goes 
into Bally flipper games, according to sales chief Paul Calamari. . . . Lou 
Casola dashed out to Birmingham, Alabama early last week when he was 
summoned to East End Memorial Hospital where his brother, Johnny Casola 
is desperately ill. We’re all pulling for Johnny, who was for many years a 
sales representative for United Mfg. Co., but the prognosis, according to the 
doctors, is not very promising. . . . We were all shocked in Springfield when 
news came that veteran local operator Ted Steskal (57) died Saturday, Jan. 
29, in St. Johns Hospital. His sons, Ray and Chris, will take over control of 
his Capitol Music Co. 

Last week Ewald Fischer and Frank Schroeder, of Fischer Mfg. Co., in 
Tipton, Mo., fled to the warmth and sun-fun in Florida (and we can’t very 
well blame them!). From there they’ll work their way back north calling on 
the trade. . . . Rock-Ola Mfg’s. Les Rieck gathered up his family and headed 
to Springfield to attend the ICMOA meet last weekend. . . . D & R Industries 
was well represented by brass at the big meet. On hand were Dennis and 
Lyn Ruber, and Richard Uttannoff. . . . The Seeburg Corp. will hold its an- 
nual stockholders’ meeting in the Grand Ballroom of the Sheraton-Blackstone 
Hotel, Wednesday, February 16. Board Chairman Delbert Coleman will chair 
the meeting, aided by Prexy Jack C. Gordon and the board of directors. 

Empire Distribs’ Jack Burns tells us the service school sessions in Grand 
Rapids and Detroit were well attended. On hand in Grand Rapids were: Ray- 
mond Venema, E & R Sales; Bill Bowens and Pat Yeo, of AMI Distribs; 
Mike Ray, Ed Schultz Amusements Co.; Jerry Sage, of Empire Distribs; Ken 
Johnston and Frank Weis. In Detroit: Willie Larger, Frank’s Music; Roger 
Harvey, Empire; Fred Zemke and Carl Rosasco, Zemke Operated Machines; 
Patrick C. Vickerman and J. O. Mailoux, Mailoux, Ltd., of Canada; Edward 
W. Berg, Ed’s Vending Co.; Willy B. Taylor, Michigan Amusements; M. Ja- 
cobs, Union Coin; Jerome A. Downey, Jerry Coin Machine Service; James 
Menzie, Excel Music; Ken Stellini, K & W Service; Aaron Katzman, Trio 
Vending; Roy Donovan, of Empire; Ed Shell, Frank’s Music; Daniel Isaac- 
son, K & W Service; Clarence Spooner, Frank’s Music; and Frank McDonald, 
of Imperial Vending Co. Jack also had a pleasant visit in Marinette with 
Lyle and Bob Olson, of M & W Vending Co. 

Illinois State Rep. Zeke Giorgi (Dem., Rockford, 111.) missed the big meet 
in Springfield because of the sub-zero temperatures. His car wouldn’t start. 
The sub-committee of the MOA School Training full committee met jointly 
with the State Board of Vocational Education, Bureau of Apprenticeship & 
Training, and the Illinois State Employment Service, Wednesday morning to 
discuss in more detail the proposed coin machine industry’s mechanics’ train- 
ing plans. Sub-committee members in attendance were: Chairman Bob Linde- 
lof, Earl Kies and Moses J. Proffitt. Nate Feinstein, of World Wide Distribs, 
who sits on the full committee, also attended, along with Jack Moran, direc- 
tor of the Institute of Coin Operations, Denver, Colorado. 

We delighted in chatting during a respite in ICMOA affairs, in Springfield, 
with Illinois State Rep. Oral Jacobs (Dem., Moline, 111.), last weekend. His 
sons, Donald and Dennis Jacobs operate H&H Consolidated Co., in Moline. 

. . . Another delightful conversationalist in the Holiday Inn East was Cappy 
Hunt, of C & F Music Co., in Champaign-Urbana. ... We just learned that 
Mrs. Nate (Eva) Feinstein is ailing. We certainly wish her a speedy recovery. 
... A belated happy birthday to veteran Windy City operator Moses J. Prof- 
fitt, who is now a healthy, “young” 70 year oldster.

Milwaukee Mentions 



1K Clint Pierce, of Brodhead, and who needs no introduction in Milwaukee

. . . See y’all there! 


From Harlem To Viet Nam 


Killer Joe Piro , His Dancers And His Jukebox 
— Rowe’s Bandstand — To Entertain Viet Troops 



Killer Joe, Rowe Manufacturing's disc-master, 
is shown at left during last year's MOA Con- 
vention with Rowe Marketing V.P. Fred Poliak. 

NEW YORK — “What do I know about 
juke boxes? Plenty! I started dancing 
to juke music up in East Harlem back 
before the war — World War II, that 
is — when I was 14 years old and I 
kept dancing while other kids in my 
neighborhood wound up in jail.” It 
was Killer Joe Piro talking about his 
rise from a youth of the depression 
years in the cellar clubs of Harlem 
to his position now as America’s 
dance master and darling of the Jet 
Set and the world of Discotheque. 

Joe was sitting back comfortably, re- 
laxed in an easy chair in the Killer 
Joe Piro Dance Studio he’s been oner- 
ating on West 55th Street in New 
York City for 18 years. Joe explained 
in recent years the studio has become 
not only a place where peonle come 
to learn the very latest in social 
dancing, but also the base of opera- 
tions for the Kifier Joe Piro Revue — 
the place where the Killer Joe dancing 
girls and boys rehearse the numbers 
their leader creates for performance 
on TV, in night clubs and hotels 
throughout the country. 

“The Killer” went on to proclaim 
that the end of Februarv will mark a 
“first” in the life of the Dance Revue 
when he and Milton Gray, his man- 
ager and promotion director, will take 
the show out of the countrv — wav out 
of the country — to- Viet Nam, where 
they’ll entertain U.S. and South Viet- 
namese troops. 

What’ll he use for musical accom- 
paniment ? 

“We’re taking a complete Rowe- 
AMI Bandstand juke box setup with 
the twin speaker units, the latest 
model console and an entire librarv of 
the latest discotheque records. The 
reason it’s got to be Rowe is because I 
think Rowe has come up with the 
truest, best sound ever created by the 
jukebox industry and I’m a bug on 
sound. If the sound of the music isn’t 


right, my dancers and I can’t do as 
good a job and the people don’t have 
as much fun — so I play it safe and 
insist on Rowe because we know it’s 
the right kind of sound.” 

To make sure he has just the music 
he feels is the best for the latest 
dances, Killer Joe is taking with him 
a batch of the Atlantic Records he 
created expressly for dancing, and the 
Smirnoff Mule album which Skitch 
Henderson made to go with the Smir- 
noff Mule dance he created. 

Milton Gray also revealed there are 
plans in the works for the troupe to 
tour a string of U.S. bases in the 
Pacific area, including a date in Aus- 
tralia, after completing their Viet 
Nam stint. 

When asked what he thought was 
happening to live music, Joe answered, 
“Some people think this discotheque 
thing is a craze — just like the Twist — 
but what they don’t realize is the fact 
that the Twist was just one dance 
but what discotheque has really done 
in this country is to bring dancing 
back. Not just one dance but many 
dances, including latin dances and 
even our national dance — the Fox 
Trot. This is helping to bring back 
live music too — big bands, little bands, 
and mostly Rhythm and Blues bands 
with an accent on the latin beat. This 
is happening because the plush places 
can’t operate just with electronic mu- 
sic and charge the prices they do, so 
they must have both. But the less 
expensive neighborhood bars and res- 
taurants can now provide dance floors 
and juke box music, because more and 
more people around the country have 
found out the cheapest way to go out 
for an evening of fun is to go danc- 
ing. Yes Sir! Dancing is back with a 
bang in the good old U.S A. and you 
can bet it’s here to stay!”

NCA Rolls 'Em To 
Show 35mm Candy 

NEW YORK — The Confectionery in- 
dustry has just produced its first 
color movie. Called “Wonderful World 
of Candy,” the movie was produced 
for NCA by Fred A. Niles Communi- 
cations Centers, Inc., of Chicago. It 
is 16 mm., color and sound, 14% 
minutes in length. 

Strictly non-commercial, the film 
covers modern candy making tech- 
niques and the industry’s role as a 
user of raw materials from all over 
the world as well as U. S. produced 
dairy and fruit products. It explains 
why candy is a wholesome, nourish- 
ing and quick-energy food, for grow- 
ing children and adults, for all athle- 



During a break on the movie set, a 
young miss helps prove NCA’s point 
— candy’s dandy. 


tic competition, as well as a safety 
factor for motorists since it relieves 
fatigue by raising the blood-sugar 
level. This is done in a light, easy 
manner, using a typical American 
family throughout. The film also con- 
tains original music and songs. 

The film is available on loan, free 
of charge, to schools, theatres, tele- 
vision stations, service clubs, business 
and fraternal groups, women’s clubs, 
PTA groups and other audiences. It 
is being distributed by Modern Talk- 
ing Picture Service from their film 
libraries throughout the country. 

For showings to employees, sales 
organizations, food brokers, candy 
buyers, distributors, wholesalers and 
others in their marketing areas. NCA 
members may obtain the loan of a 
print direct from NCA headquarters 
in Chicago. They may also purchase 
a print of the film, at cost. For those 
NCA members who wish to add com- 
pany identification to a print, ar- 
rangements have been made to in- 
clude footage at the end stating 
“Distributed by (name of firm)” . . . 
and followed by “Makers of (and 
here list products or brand names).” 

Modern Talking Picture Service 
estimates that more than 3% million 
people will view the film during its 
first year of showings. Additional 
viewers will be obtained by members 
of the confectionery industry who 
will also be arranging showings in 
their respective marketing areas. In 
all, some 4 million people will prob- 
ably see the film this year. 


American Tobacco To 
Launch Waterford New 
Filter In N.Y. Feb. 21st 



FENTON 


NEW YORK — Robert Fenton, vend- 
ing supervisor here for the American 
Tobacco Co., revealed last week that 
his firm’s new Waterford brand ciga- 
rette (which feature water particles 
suspended in the filter) will be re- 
leased to the New York market Feb. 
21st. The new brand has been success- 
fully test marketed in the Buffalo, 
N.Y. area for several months Fenton 
advised, and he looks forward to an 
encouraging sales prospectus with 
this city’s vending operators. Fenton 
further advised that American Tobac- 
co will help launch Waterford here by 
placing heavy newspaper and TV ad- 
vertising in New York media to ac- 
company the brand’s release. Water- 
ford is popular priced. 

The vending operator will also be 
approached in the coming weeks by 
Fenton concerning American’s Tarey- 
ton filter, advising them to keep 
stocked up on the brand. “Tareyton 
has been consistently growing in 
sales,” Fenton said, “and many op- 
erators may find themselves running- 
short. They must remember that they 
can’t sell what they don’t have,” he 
added. 


Automatic Retailers Names 
W. H. Johnson To V. Pres. 

PHILADELPHIA— William H. John- 
son has been elected a corporate vice 
president of Automatic Retailers of 
America, Inc. and promoted to general 
manager of its hospital food manage- 
ment division. Johnson, 43, a retired 
naval officer, has been midwest region- 
al general manager for HFM in Chi- 
cago since 1963. 

Johnson will be headquartered here 
and direct dietary and food service to 
more than 100 hospitals in 25 states, 
the District of Columbia and Puerto 
Rico. 

Harvey T. Stephens, division presi- 
dent, also named three regional gen- 
eral managers who will report to 
Johnson. They are John A. Vander- 
slice, with offices in Philadelphia, 
eastern region; Robert A. Gordon, 
with offices in Chicago, midwest re- 
gion, and John S. Vaughan, whose 
offices will be in Atlanta, southern 
region. 

ARA’s hospital division has been 
serving medical care institutions since 
1952 and employs many graduate 
dietitians.

California Clippings 


The first of the N.A.M.A. meetings is just a month away. The sessions will 
start on March 12 and end in June. And topics will include current wage and 
hour demands affecting vending company employees, benefits of utilizing pro- 
gressive wage and salary policies and the 40 hour work week programs started 
by a number of vending companies. Meetings will be held on Saturdays in a 
number of cities throughout the country and are open to all vending operators 
in the respective conference areas. . . . Johnny Morris calling on the ops in the 
northern territory for the local Wurlitzer factory branch. Business, we hear, 
has been moving at a steady pace with Discotheque set-ups continuing to catch 
the eye and ear of the public. Emil Addy, credit manager from the Wurlitzer 
factory, recently visited branches in L. A., New Orleans and San Francisco 
before returning home. . . . Buddy Robinson at California Music reporting 
that the R.C.A. 8 track car tapes are gaining in sales there. . . . Britt Adelman 
at Paul Laymon, Inc. tells us that two new pin games manufactured by Bally

“Fun Cruise” and both stirring up op acceptance. Jim Wilkins made the rounds 
in the Arcadia area last week. . . . Jerry Wallace, Mercury Records’ artist, 
visited Luenhagen’s recently with his latest single titled “Diamonds and Horse-

parts department at Advance, tells us that the “Joker Ball” idea has caught on 
and increased sales. Jack created the concept for Advance Automatic Sales. 
Another shipment has arrived from Belgium. And, due to an overload of work 
in the shop, another man has been added to the staff — he’s Larry Rowlette. A 
new shipment of Valley pool tables are in at Simon Dist. with the shop jumping 
with export orders for Europe. . . . John Fulton, field service engineer at 
Struve Dist., conducted a vending service school in Phoenix. It covered the cof-

the process of remodeling and is expanding its parts department. They’ll have 
a new lighting system throughout the area. And, in celebration of Valentine’s 
Day, a “Sweetheart Sale” is being held this month on used phonos. Lt. Com- 
mander Jameson of the U.S. aircraft carrier Princeton paid a visit last week. 
He arranged to have a member of his crew attend the service school on phonos 
to be held at C.M.S. so that he can properly service the phono that Marvin has 
given the ship. Miller will also be mailing new releases to the ship — wherever 
it may be. There was a boatload of ops along coin machine alley this past week

MOA School Board 
Meets State Board 

^CHICAGO — There was a joint meet- 
ing last Wednesday morning, Feb- 
' ruary 2, of the sub-committee of the 
Music Operators of America’s Train- 
ing School Committee with the State 
Board of Vocational Education, the 
k Bureau of Apprenticeship and Train- 
ing, and the Illinois State Employ- 
ment Service in the offices of the 
"'State Board of Vocational Education. 

Sub-committee members in attend- 
4 ance were: Bob Lindelof, chairman; 

Moses J. Proffitt, and Earl Kies. Nate 
► Feinstein, a member (representing 
distributors) of the full committee, 
was also on hand. 

"* Jack Moran, head of the Institute 
i of Coin Operations, in Denver, Colo- 
.Arado, was invited by MOA’s repre- 
I sentatives since he was considered 
p an expert in this particular discus- 
sion and could lend his practical 
k support to the proposed coin machine 
school training program in Chicago. 
‘ Purpose of this meeting was to dis- 
’cuss in detail the school training pro- 
^ gram in all of its aspects. 


A.T.E. Report 

^ (Continued from page 63) 

^ As always, the old established ex- 
hibitors, Kraft’s of London, had a 
.wealth of new British made equip- 
*ment. Derek Kraft reported a very 
^ successful show with particularly 
r heavy orders for fruit and wall ma- 
chines both paying gold awards. An- 
L other veteran British manufacturer 
Streets Automatics had their justly 
famous Rifle Gallery and equally 
y renowned automatic Wheel-Em-In Id 
i play. The only new machine on the 
Streets stand was the automatic 
change machine giving 3d pieces in 
> exchange for 2/6d; 2/- or 6d. 

A professional demonstrator at the 
Electro-Golf stand attracted a good 
crowd at all times. On show for the 
v first time in Britain, this American 

* coin operated machine is accurate to 
a degree and can be used for recrea- 
tional or training purposes. A system 
of photo electric cells and transducers 

‘•■’wfeeds information to a computer which 
in turn tells the golfer by means of an 
U illuminated flash panel whether the 
stroke was free, accurate or sliced 
% together with the distance and devia- 
tion of the ball. 

I Overseas visitors to the exhibition 
included: America: Maurice Sykes, 
Martin Bromley, Bill O’Donnell, Paul 
1 '-» Hunger, Gilbert Kitt, Irving Kaye, 
Sam Stern. From France, M. Bizouard, 

< -v Madame M. J. Moreillon, M. Hequette,

Mrs. Chapman. From Italy, Franco 
!-*Schreiber and Mr. Pasqueri. From 
Finland. Mr. Kaski and from Switzer- 
^ land Mr. Schneidegger. 

Two trade fairs of interest to inter- 
national coin men will take place in 

* Germany later this year. The Hanover 
i Trade Fair will be from April 30th 
j-^to May 8th. This year for the first 
(. t time the organisers will permit phono- 
graphs to be shown. Previously coin 
operated equipment has been limited 
to vending machines only. It is re- 

„ ported that some 39 coin machine ex- 
hibitors have applied for stands. The 

- second Fair is scheduled for October 
and will take place in Dusseldorf . This 

- will be entirely devoted to coin oper- 
ated equipment and therefore likely 

‘ r to appeal to manufacturers, distribu- 
tors and operators even more than the 
Hanover show which caters for all 
branches of the industry.

Wisconsin Ops to Meet 

SPRINGFIELD — Formal announce- 
ment was made during the two-day 
meeting of the Illinois Coin Machine 
Operatoi-s’ Association (ICMOA), 
January 29-30, by Clinton S. Pierce, 
vice president of MOA, and president 
of the Wisconsin Music Merchants’ 
Association, that all members of the 
Wisconsin State group and the Mil- 
waukee Coin Machine Operators’ As- 
sociation will meet, on Sunday, Feb- 
ruary 20, at the Ambassador Hotel 
in Milwaukee to merge both large 
factions into one statewide organiza- 
tion. And, to discuss pressing matters 
pertinent to the coin machine opera- 
tors in Wisconsin. The Milwaukee 
operators’ association is presided over 
by coinvet Sam Hastings, of Hastings 
Dist. Co., of Milwaukee. 

When Pierce announced the impor- 
tant session on the dais in the Holi- 
day Inn East, during the general 
meeting on Sunday, he issued an invi- 
tation to the rank and file of ICMOA, 


readers that the 23rd Amusement 
Trades Exhibition will be held at 
Alexandra Palace from November 
29th to 1st December this year. This 
means, of course, two shows in 1966 
but for the future there will be just 
the one show at the end of each year. 


Feb. 20 in Milwaukee 

MOA members, and to people oper- 
ating or owning all types of coin- 
operated equipment in Iowa, Illinois, 
Michigan and Minnesota to attend 
the extra-ordinary meeting in Mil- 
waukee. 

He said: “Of special interest to all 
operators will be a discussion of the 
revision of the Copyright Law, and 
how this will affect every phono- 
graph (music) operator in the United 
States.” 

Also on the agenda of events for 
the big Wisconsin meet: Lou Casola, 
board chairman of MOA, and presi- 
dent of ICMOA; and Fred Granger, 
executive vice president and managing 
director of MOA, will discuss “The 
Legislation and What MOA Is Trying 
To Do About It.” 

Pierce urged all those who plan to 
be in Milwaukee for the meeting to 
prepare their questions if they possi- 
bly can prior to the session where 
they will be discussed in detail by 
the officials on the dais. Operators 
are further urged to bring their 
wives. He said: “We have arranged 
a fine program of events, and there 
will be a smorgasbord luncheon pro- 
vided by the association (along with 
some of that good, old Wisconsin 
I hospitality).” 


Ted Steskal Passes 
Away After Heart Attack 

CHICAGO — As the Illinois Coin Ma- 
chine Operators’ Association meeting 
was at the height of activity, last 
weekend, January 29-30, in the Holi- 
day Inn East, in Springfield, and 
most of the members and guests had 
arrived, the assemblage was suddenly 
plunged into a state of sadness and 
tragedy when word arrived that Syl- 
vester (Ted) Steskal, a veteran 
Springfield coin machine operator, 
died following a heart attack, Satur- 
day afternoon, in St. Johns Hospital. 
With him when he expired was Joe 
McCormick, of Musical Sales Co., St. 
Louis, Missouri. 

Steskal (57), born in Austria, was 
a resident of Springfield since his 
family’s arrival to this country. He 
was the owner and operator of Capi- 
tol Music Co., in Springfield. His 
sons, Raymond and Chris, who were 
associated with him in Capitol Music, 
will now operate the company. 

Steskal served for 20 years with 
the Springfield Police Department. He 
was also a former state police officer 
during the famed Henry Horner ad- 
ministration, and was at one time one 
of Gov. Horner’s police aides. He re- 
tired from the police force in 1962.

SAM STERN 


CHICAGO— Sam Stern, president of 
^ Williams Electronic Mfg. Corp., this 
1 city, issued an announcement this past 
^ week to the amusement games oper- 
^ ators throughout this country and the 
far-flung foreign markets to the effect 
that “certain vital adjustments are 
being made in current and future 
, 9 flipper models to further increase col- 
lection receipts in locations.” 

in this country, all Williams flipper 
models, commencing with the up- 
V coming ‘Full House’ single-player re- 
_ lease, games will arrive at the distrib- 
utor’s place of business plugged, in 
. for three-hall play. In the foreign 
markets, all models commencing with 
Williams ‘8-Ball’ two-player, the 
games will also be plugged in for 
■^three-ball play. 

, . Stern added, “We know games get 
4 most of their play during peak 
periods. With this in mind we are now 
** advocating three-ball play on all flip- 
. per games. It is our opinion that the 
operator’s receipts should increase if 
-4 he operates his games on three-ball 
play to take advantage of peak period 
♦p* play. This, however, does not cancel 
out five-ball play wherever it is con- 
sidered necessary by the operator. 

“We have sent a bulletin to all our 
distributors advising them that we 
^- are shipping all of our games set to 
operate on three-ball play and in- 
4 structing them to advise all their 
operators in their areas. 
t> “The price of equipment is lower 
now than it will be in the future un- 
,L less there is a complete reversal m 
our economy. Vital copper is short, 
‘^costing eight or nine dollars per game 
, more. Naturally, we are not telling 
1 ^operators to buy more equipment. We 
, _ are merely telling them that they 
^ must increase their receipts so that 
jothey can continue to purchase new 
equipment. New equipment is a neces- 
*sity in the amusement game business 
to help operators keep their receipts 
Jr " rising. 

“Previously, we recommended front 
** money on amusement games, also ten 
cent play. We held group meetings 
" ' with operators in every section of the 
United States and despite the fact 
that our operator friends all agreed 
it was necessary, as far as we know, 
, u no one is getting front money on these 
games.

with in our fine relationship with 
game operators in the wide interna-

A Scopitone Location Bow 

Hollywood and Scopitone star Joi 
Lansing arrived here to visit the 
Scopitone plant. Tel-A-Sign, Inc. 
president A. A. Steiger and Eddie 
Ginsburg escorted her to the Palmer 
House to formally open a downtown 
Scopitone location in the Palmer’s 
Pub. Also on hand were Bill Stephen- 
son, marketing and advertising man- 
ager for Scopitone; and Stan Levin, 


Scopitone sales director for Atlas 
Music Company, distributors in this 
area. 

Miss Lansing informed Cash Box 
that she has two new films for 
Scopitone due to be released shortly. 

Ginsburg said that he is setting 
plans at Atlas Music Co. for a series 
of service training schools on the 
Scopitone machine much like the 
school sessions conducted on other 
coin-operated equipment.
